***For Sale***

Anybody want a Jeep? I am trying to sell my 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer. It's a great truck but I just don't drive it enough. Here are a few pics.

It's been a while, but I am getting back into the woodshop. I found some scraps of mahogony, walnut, maple, and ambrosia wormwood maple and decided to put them together.

Here is an end-grain cutting board made of mahogony and maple. I still have some sanding to do before I oil it. The oil should really bring out the mahogony.

This board is maple and walnut with thin mahogony strips.

And finally, I started a chess board out of the ambrosia maple and mahogony. It will have a thin border of zebrawood around the edges. I plan on making the chess pieces out of glass. This should keep me busy for a while.

Cow Tipping

Check out this video of a Tigermoth bi-plane having to make an emergency landing after his engine failed on take-off. Must be hard to see over the nose of that thing.
