And Lastly, A Little Fun At My Neighbor's Expense
Walking is a great way to get a little exercise, clear your head, or just enjoy the great outdoors. One of my favorite places to walk is through a series of trails I have, over time, created through a couple of square miles or so of woods and wetlands. Of course, getting to those woods means I have to walk about a mile through suburbia. Along the way I have seen some interesting sights.

This is a great example… What do you do when the snowplow knocks down your mailbox? Well, you fix it, of course! I'm still trying to figure out what the piece of wood hanging out the back is supposed to accomplish.
Next month in the Down To Earth Woodworker, I'll share my plans and instructions for a tool sharpening system that will revolutionize the way we all maintain our edge tools. It is truly amazing. I will also (finally) show the finished matching live edge coffee tables I've been building and describe my design criteria for a new sanding center for the shop. Stay tuned!
