    :cool: my friends that are not wood workers think they are cool, beautiful. They are especially impressed when I tell them that I chainsawed the boards out of a tree, lol.
    They admire my mechanical projects too, like machinery rebuilds, bikes, and motors.

    Like Greg said, my friends that aren't woodworkers are amazed by them. They don't realize it's something anyone could do, they can't figure out how I build these things:sarcastic:

    Well, my MIL thinks I'm a fantastic pen turner, so does my SIL.
    My nephew says "Meh" & doesn't give it much thought.

    When I had a local supply of California Redwood, I made a lot of picnic table sets & sold them.
    People were amazed I could build a table & bench seats to match.
    When my supply of CRW dried up, so did my furniture building sideline.

    My wife likes the way I rebuilt our deck & saved a ton of money, so I guess they all think I do OK.
    It helps I can use my head & my hands to figure out how to build stuff in my mind still.
    Taking shop class from 7th grade to 12th grade probably helps a bit too.

    I'll go with the "friends that don't do woodwork think I do great" crowd.
    The friends that actually know of all or most of my different projects do brag on me for having the attitude and ability to try whatever I happen to think of on any given day.
    I try to get it through to the younger guys that even if you never make any particular project again, you will always have the different skills it took to make something the first time.

    Well, know it or not, I'm a friend & I ain't no damn Yankee.
    I'll have you to know I was born south of the Mason-Dixon line kind sir.

    Bless your heart. (Only a Southerner knows what that really means.)
