Welcome, come in and spend a while. We like our coffee with a sprinkling of wood chips. I like cherry the best.

Lewis…if you use the finished project item…you can upload direct to this site from your computer. If you want to post more then the allowed 6 or so pics or you want to show some in your blog….set up an account with Flickr or one of those sites….add your pics to that sight and use a link here to display – you can also link to external sites to show examples…etc….there is instructions if you cllick on a project in progress…they give examples also…
