This looks very interesting. Beautiful work! I see stacks or wood that look like you did some carving on them also.
I would love to see it when it’s all set up!

Hi Walthe3r,

Sorry I have not gotten back to you…been just running around taking care of errands.
Beautiful work my friend!!
You are certainly a master craftsman!....just like my buddy Jeremy. I’ll send you some of my meager woodworking projects….and some of his. He’s teaching an old man how to do woodworking….and God bless his patience and tenacity! I’ll stay in touch with you.
