I received these boards from Quixote to build the flag display cases a week ago Wed. The white cat is Cotton and the calico is Pugsly. Cotton claimed the boards as hers as soon as I laid them on the floor after opening. The other PICS are of my new air compressor and brad nailor. I got it for $100.00 on clearance. I had permission from SWMBO to buy it. as I need it to build the display cases.

Rick,

Nice looking wood. Your cats have great taste! Looks like the nailer and compressor will do a great job.

How did the tests come out?

won’t know for 3-5 days. I tested the brad nailor out already on a piece of mahogany and it went in like butter

It’s a good thing they told you not to stand on your compressor… that is probably exactly what you were going to do to it! I hate idiot directions…just give me the important stuff!!
The wood looks great. Clearly the cats are enjoying it too!
