Check out the addition information- @Jim from Easy Wood Tools added some really great information to a resurrected post comparing Easy Wood Tools to some of the clones that have been showing up in the woodworking stores. Check it out so you don't buy a pig-in-a-poke! You may remember from last week that @Cliff donated his Easy Wood Tools winnings, from our Operation Ward 57 Adopt a Wounded Warrior Family, to @Pauley.

My Mom, who recently moved to an assisted living facility, wasn't happy with the only table in her living space. Finding one that would fit proved futile so I have been working on building one. Safe turning
I'm on the election board in our county and last week my cohort from the other side of the aisle sent me a text with a picture of a portable wine table. She asked if I could make her two of them so I made a prototype and then five more. The table is designed for portability but she wanted to know if I could fabricate a patio stand with it. Hopefully, they'll sell at my summer shows. One of the pictures shows the table upside down so that the spike on the bottom is visible. Carry the thing to your favorite venue by the handle in the top and stick it in the ground. A group of the "Golden Girls" of my high school graduating class travel to various parts of the country in the summer seeking out wineries to explore. They jokingly asked if I could make one that would hold two bottles because simply wasn't enough. That should tell you a bit about my high school days, let alone my college experience.
