That’s going to be a nice entertainment center. Looks like the room it’s going in is bigger than half my house.
That guy you hired looks familiar. I think he worked half a day for me once. I told to go to Florida, there was plenty of work out there. Thanks for the post and welcome back.

thx top its great to hear from you ! ive always enjoyed you company . you seem unhappy top and id like to offer you some insight that maybe would help . things on the net are quite often not as they first appear . id say it all started like this , you joined l j , alot of people welcomed you to thr site . this gave you a very warm feeling and the first thing that comes to mind is , this is great ive been accepted in this community and it a bunch of woodworkers , people i have a lot in common with . and that my friend is the big misconception . they are not people you have a lot in common with they are .. engineers , doctors , software designers , lawyers veterinarians , ect. not people you have a lot in common with . ones that actually work in the trades are very few . sveral years ago a doctor called me to look at some work at his house . i pull up in front and hes in the drivway washing a 1963 corvette . there are several garage doors open and i see another 63 vette and a old ford wagon all customized and tricked out among others . the fist thing i said to him was before we look at your job id first like to look at your old cars . well it turns out he ownes a co. that restores cars and builds hot rods . it also happens yrs. ago i had a body shop and did a lot of restorations . now him and i can and have sat for hours and talked about old cars , how to fix this or that where to find parts , ect . thats gives you a feeling like we are the best of friends . however if the topic changes to the price of gas , health ins. taxes . politics , ect we suddenly agree on almost nothing and really dont like each others views . so think about how many time a thread starts up off topic and someone posts , hey guys lets keep it about wood . thats as it should be . its the only thing everyone has in common . so i guess im saying when someone posts a viewpoint thats far from being right for you and your personal life it can also be very right for his . the only way to stay happy is to ignore it and move on . and by the way i dont always agree with you either , but i do always consider you a brother and a friend !!! lol IM MR. TRIM AND I APPROVE THIS NOVEL !! LOL

MrT, I think these are some very nice and wise words for a 56 yr old guy.

”If it is the wood that sticks us together, stick to the wood.”

top i certainly understand your feelings . i once wrote a very seering reply to someones absurd comment . it bothered me all day and when i got home i wrote a public apollogy . i made it clear i wasnt sorry for what i said but for the way i said it and it wasnt an example of the type community i want to be part of . like ole smokey the bear says only you can make it a great community !! lol hey feel free to hang out here with me and ole bull , hes not a bad guy and as you well know im just awsome !! lol
