I think I have planned enough wood I fiulared about 52' board feet for 112 covers
the next step will be routing out the backs but have to build a jig first

I would love getting into your scrap pile .
I have a bunch of salvaged knotty pine out of a house that had a fire . The next tool on my list is a planner .I brought them from Arkansas when I sold the house a coupla years ago , and have had them for 20+ years , just waiting for the right project . They will wall my new room that hopefully I'll get to finish next year . Your projects just give me incentive

can't wait to see the next thing to turn me green!!! years ago, as I was always involved with horses, I cut out horse shapes and painted them to match my horses for my switch plates....used their mane and tail hair to make them more "real".....I still use and treasure them

you rock, girl !!!!

they are very simple....lived in N.M. at the time....if you've seen the Indian pottery, they sorta remind me of that....running horse outlines mostly. I know yours will be outstanding like the rest of your "doings"....I'm in a state of permanent "green" LOL
