What do you do when:

1) You have a need?

2) You have a beautiful piece of figured hard wood?

3) You desperately need a woodworking fix?

4) It’s 114 heat index in the shop with 79% humidity?

The answer, “Simplicity”

(now for a little lemonade…)

-- All glory comes from daring to begin.

Wife went looking for one of these… not in timber …in plastic… could not find on… I suggested a wooden one… turned her nose up…she likes all my other work but not the i-Pad holder…

I understand about the heat – just 40 miles east of you and working in the yard with my wife today. Sure was humid. But at least I have a breese unlife your part of Florida!

Nice idea for your i pad. Nice finish too.

Great idea. Might have to make one of those for my wife’s new KOBO E-Reader.

Know all about that heat index here in Arizona. I am repairing a cane for a friend at the dinning room table. (yes the wife said it was OK) haha

Keep it up.
