    Re: Post a picture of what's on your bench?

    I appreciate you posting this. When I have days like that in the shop, I think it's just me and I should stick to farming. The fact that you have these days too gives me hope. Thanks!

    Love it! I also am enjoying the scenery behind it. I really enjoy sailing small boats like this one, more so even than larger boats. Sailing dinghies have an immediacy about them that make them so...
