They do look good, it's the pretty red color Woodpecker has.

Nick, it's not where do I put it but it's where (did) I put them.

Don I did what Gene did took a 2x6 drilled holes down the center than ripped in in two pieces. Have been using
it for several years now. Have three different sizes. Drill 3/4" holes for 1/2" pipe clamps and larger holes for
3/4" pipe clamps.

Woodpecker=$$$$$$$$$ Their quality is top shelf, for a price. They have come up with some great ideas over the years. A lot can be shop built for way less, not as purty but the only one looking at them is the guy using it, and he can spend the money he saved on a cold one.

I have a couple of their items. One such item, my wife bought me for a gift. I have used it several times, especially when breaking down sheet goods. Good quality, and made in the U.S.A.

Huh. I've known of story sticks for I don't know how long. Didn't realize anyone made them to sell, thought they were always homemade.

Of course I'm not busy, I did it right the first time.
Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

Just a concept drawing. I have some scrap 3/4 inch plywood I can use. I might even add a foot on the rear to help stabilize the board while gluing up a project. This is a 24 inch model 3 inches tall. That should take care of most of my glue ups for things like cutting boards or panels for the CNC.

Oh yeah, the cradles are 1 inch dia (for 1/2 inch pipe), and the slots are for Bessey clamps that I have.

I added a couple of holes so I can hang them on the wall from either end.

LOL...it's a positive trait indicating the vast experiences of our advanced youth...where you put something is not as important as it staying there so it can find you...

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

I am going to make a pair of 24 inchers for research and development. Could go up to 36 inches if needed without having to "tile" the work piece for the longer length.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
