Smile Santa came early.......

My order from Peachtree arrived today.

The carton was large, but 3/4 full of packing. I wonder if they had a smaller carton?

I was surprised how large the bowl/tray templates were....

Happy Christmas to me, happy Christmas to me.......

Dan, the order was $199, freight was $109. How much for a VW?????????


Yes, Harry, I was out in the sun today putting some timber through the thickness planner so that I could make up some panels to go in the template/jig holder. Joint and glue up tomorrow.

I think the major cost was all that glider fuel in the carton.....

I really do wish you all the best with your new toys James but must tell you that you are missing out on the satisfaction of making your own templates. It's a bit like painting by numbers!

James I will be interested in seeing the fruits of your labour as well as, seeing that you have never had this kit before then you will be able to give a full report on how easy you found it was to use it. NGM

Your question is to broad in scope and to vague, you need ask which way it was floated to Australia, as it could have floated here so many ways with some of them less direct than others, The Pacific is wide as is the Atlantic and, it could have been detoured via the South Java Sea, or fallen out of the Great Gulf Stream and gotten lost in the Southern Ocean, the direct route would have been to toss it into the Panama Canal so try to be more precise with your questions.
