Hi Bob!

It’s great that he has taken to wood. I do see flames on his T-Shirt…maybe he’ll also take to woodburning. LOL!

Great work Tom, nice to see your love of wood. You also have a great teacher. Many a L.J’er would wish they had the opportunity to start at your age, I know i do. All the best in the future.

Way Cool. That boy is focused. I’m looking forward to when I can do the same with my grandkids … I’m a bit jealous.
