Hell’s Bells … Monte looks damn good for 80, hope to be making sawdust at his age too!

Charles,

That was a GOOD ONE! :) LOL

It seems like I have seen him in some of your videos…

Golly, if had known that you had Board Foot Calculators for people having their 80th birthday, I would have told you about MY 80th birthday! LOL

That was a great gift! I’m sure he will cherish it…

FUNNY!!

Oh, you said it was “rough sawn”... I guess that means that you did’t apply a Finish to it? LOL

Thank you!
