I just came in from the shop where I am about 3/4 of the way thru my (your) table build. Looking very cool so far. Congrats to GuyK on his retirement.

Dennis – Thanks! Hope yours is a great one too.
gbear – I am really looking forward to seeing your version of the table.
Napaman – I think that this year’s goal is just to get back on my site to start sharing more and finish developing some furniture plans I have started.
We are going to be busy with starting Rita’s new restaurant the “Broadway Deli & Cafe” in downtown Billings, MT. She is supposed to be open officially within the next 2 weeks.
sras – Now that is what I am talking about:)
GuyK – Congrats Man! Look forward to seeing your projects that come from your new found freedom;)

Thanks for the puck Todd. GuyK looks like a great place to play.
Looks like a couple of new tools waiting for someone to come out and play.

Todd, I tried to follow you example today, but It’s snowing in my shop! This is almost unheard of in the desert. And there is supposed to be two more days of this. I guess I go back to hibernating for two days. This is SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA for goodness sakes. Maybe we had an earthquake and moved north last night.

Thanks for the suggestion, Mr Clippinger, but Jeez, man, get some safety glasses on!! There’s goggles for wearing over your prescription lenses, and even reading glass safety glasses if those are readers you have on. Otherwise, nice video!! Thx!

GuyK that looks like a dream shop in the works for sure.
Yea, I know I should wear safety glasses. Ironically I have goggles and I have safety prescription glasses which both get static charged and grab all kinds of dust. I hate them both. Gotta be honest, don’t think you will see me ever wear them but I take responsibility for that decision;)
