    Well this is work...Cabinets with doors on the bottom and these shelves on top, a set on either side of a fireplace and then a mantle and top piece with legs to match, to surround a TV on top and the brick fireplace on bottom, which may get skinned with ceramic tiles, craftsman/mission style. Red mahogany stain.

    Dig the scoot, my mom had one of those not long ago. She wanted me to rat it out and add a motor. Unfortunately it didn't happen.

    I'm hoping to meet up with KF while I'm there, would be great to get a guided tour of the city.
    The only thing about my trip I'm wondering about is the Texas leg, they've had ALOT of rain lately. I haven't heard how Galveston and San Antonio are, guess I'll see.

    Ride, ride, ride, race, work on trails, hike in the woods, rock hounding, birding, coach ski jumping, hunting, canoeing/kayaking, lunch with my buddies, light remodeling projects, building stuff like a dock or out building, mow the grass, shovel snow, rake leaves, cut firewood, work out my dogs, eat, breathe, eliminate, read and sleep. Mostly I work on bikes or ride them if I have no parts. All all this other stuff gets in the way of bikes. I can do all this stuff cause I am retired, the best job I ever had.

    Well, I don't wait on build parts so much as I wait on the money to buy parts (low-income service jobs are not conducive to hobbies, alas. :( ) but when i'm in between projects i'm either hanging out here soaking up knowledge, or i'm doing the same for my other hobby over here:

    http://www.cigarboxnation.com/photo/photo/listForContributor?screenName=0ds7etk4kaq77

    Still can't play anything I build-hours at work are too irregular to line up lessons-but i've sold a fair number for supplemental income, so I have at least one hobby that's self-supporting...:21:

    Addictive things aren't they? :D

    I'll share some ideas and parts I use...
    P bass split pickups can be divided to power two cbgs.
    Tenor banjo bridges work fine with a good box.
    Mandolin tuners work well for two 4 string cbgs.

    I can't reply to anything, I get a server error, for several months now. Anyway Carl, I like your guitars.
    I like your guitars
    I always wanted to make one out of an old military water can i have, a small metal dog bowl for a reflector. I have too many projects anyway so will never get around to it but it is something I have been thinking about for years.

    When picking a bike to ride, do you ever feel like Daniel Larusso being told to choose by Mr. Miyagi?
