Thank you John... always appreciate a kind word from you.

as for the recipients knowing how much work went into them... naaaaaaaaa they don't have a clue *L* and thats fine by me. I've been asked several times to do different projects for folks for pay, I just don't have a clue as to where to begin figuring out what somethings are worth....in fact, i have a good friend who owns a high end crafty kinda store (more of a country arts market) who has been after me for years to put things out on consignment in his shop. I often think about it, but have never pulled the trigger. but it sure would be a nice way to fund future tool purchases and keep the Mrs. happy at the same time

I have really been out of pocket, so this is the first time to see these, very fine workmanship Bill, very well done. I only hope to do that well.

thanks Jerry very much appreciate the compliment...

these were pretty straight forward with just a bit of 'extra' and some nice wood I had sitting around the shop. The only parts I hard to order was the hardware.
