    This segmented blank I picked up from a rockler store. I've made a few others but they didn't turn out that nice

    welcome from Colorado. You have a great start and will really enjoy the craziness of this bunch.

    Which piece of "southern" Iowa do you call home? My mom was raised around Fairfield and I still have an aunt and uncle at Burlington. But one of my good friends is from the other side at Lenox. Enjoy, you have a lot of good lumber growing between the bean and corn fields!!!!
