    the last several weeks have been a woodworking dry spell for me, I need a “creative” transfusion, perhaps this would help!

    I’ve always loved that clock. It caught my eye the first time I walked through the popwood office many years ago.

    Great book for those who you want to make something for someone’s birthday or other occasion but don’t know what they want or they want a highboy but this book you can let them pick a gift that won’t break the bank or suck up excessive time. If they want to help that is a plus.
