My Mistake, I went to the wrong place.

I particularly liked Osama bin Laden. Now I know why it gets so hot at your place. You are in Arizona I guess. I'm sitting here with the window open and enjoying the 72 degree weather in the Mountains of North Carolina.

Yea, I've heard about that "dry heat" and it sure sounds good. I have a feeling that come next winter I'm going to be wishing I was over there.

BTW, what kind of wood do you use for those cute charicatures? I've tryed poplar, pine, and basswood. Is there something else you would recommend?

I use mostly basswood, found a man in wisconsin that has really good wood and good prices.....good wood makes it a pleasure to carve! His site is members.tripod.com/~woodsource/index.html if you order any, tell him Dave Dunlap referred you...I don't get anything but promised I would help him get some business...he has a one man mill set up, sometimes is fast with his order, sometimes a little slower, but he will get it out and it is terrific wood! Probably more info than you wanted LOL

Ron...I posted twice in answer to your question and it isn't here? I also have a good source for basswood...but maybe we should discuss that via email...they got lost here?

Hey Chips...it seems that a few post have strangely disappeared into the matrix. Our server has been under DoS attack, which has hit many site allover the internet hard this month. I'm thinking that this might be causing the problem. As when these attacks happen, the server locks itself down, causing any information being sent to be lost. :cry:
