I’ll avoid any reference to the ‘caliber’ of your work, hairy!
You’ve outdone yourself once again, on the ingenuity of your projects.

ps, ”Quit school, why fake it” in response to your excellent tagline. How many people know what that is in reference to?

@ hairy: You’ve inspired me now, to say when ever I post a project: “Do ya love it, do ya hate it, there it is, the way I made it, Woooow!!”

Neat!

The anti-gun nuts may try to make that an illegal weapon also!.

Now you can make an artillery shell for picnic silverware storage!
