I guess you really distinguished a wood from an iron. As for, I know what you mean. Remember the I’ll Kick Your A$$ thread. That was probably the start of it. Man, that one was fun.

Too bad about your friend. Is that the guy in the avatar with you? As for me, been doing a lot of remodeling on my own house. Puttin’ in new windows, tearing out ceilings, insulating and puttin’ up new ceiling tiles. Now I know what Michaelangelo went through on the Chapel ceiling. I also gotta install a new front door. Couldn’t buy a pre-hung, because the existing transom is the headrail for my door. So I just bought a Fir door with glass fan lites. Man that baby is heavy. I remember doing a lot of doors in the 70’s and 80’s and they were a lot lighter then – ha, ha, ha.

I cut the first dining table I ever made (in the 70’s) longwise and took out about 16” in the middle to make a sewing table for LOML, and put casters on it. It’s basically an Oak Parsons design. I’ve been using it for about 30 years, and LOML decided we should get a new dining set> I said “I’ll make it”. She said ” NO, we will just go and buy one”. Can you imagine me going to a furniture store and buying a wood dining room set – WHOOO-BOY. Times are a changing. Really though, I’ve got too much to do to build a set. I’d probably be 115 yrs old by the time I finished and wouldn’t have an appetite at that age.

Anyway it’s good to hear from you again, and congrats on the Modship. I’ll have to stop in.
