    I've been slacking quite a bit on posting....Oldest boy is in Boy Scouts now, and youngest is in Cub Scouts. Which has me running all over trying to keep up. But here a few shots to show I really have been working on stuff.


    A dangler set up that is available if anyone is interested.

    Nice Skab. Those all look great. I am loving my little ulu.
    My father in law actually wants one now. I will have to tell him about these.
