    Had our first club meeting last night since you came to my place in Jerilderie.

    Got some real positive feedback. They already talking about next time.

    Think we would like to see a stool / chair leg done at production speed followed by a demo on how to reproduce it at demo speed.

    Again, thanks for the time

    A big thank you to ,for taking the time to readjust 'some' of our bad habits in a short but very informative visit.
    If ever any other forumites have the opportunity to have looking over your shoulder,grab it with both hands.

    Cheers

    Not bullet holes Nick but the holes left after a barrage of skew chisels from disgruntled Forumites when they found out that they can be used for other things beside tomato stakes.
