    Default Paul Girouard!!!

    Returns from a two year banning!

    Nice to have you back. Perhaps you can offset some of that left coast whackery coming from David G.

    I certainly hope so. That madman is outta control!!

    And I certainly hope that The Squid has spent his time away reading up on history, politics, economics, etc. and honing his understanding of logic and his skills in honest rhetoric. That'd be WAY cool.

    But maybe all he did was make interesting sawdust where he excels... and he's willing to share fotos...

    Indeed. But I got the clear impression he didn't want to talk about that. Maybe in general... or maybe he was just pizzed at ME that day (it's been known to happen).

    That's an impressive haul Paul, but your craftsmanship is never in doubt, and it is good to see you back.

    Wow, two years. I bet you’ve mellowed into an easy going guy. Doubters gotta doubt. Right now I’m getting a kick seeing my son-in-law turn a pile of cypress 6”x 6” into a carport with mortise and tenon joints.

    Not from us chickens but I do remember a guy who used to give you a hard time. He doesn't post here anymore. I think the consensus was you were better than not half bad.


    Welcome back. Nice colors!

    It's good to see you back, Paul. Nice set of medals, BTW. It would be good to see what they're for.

    I was maybe thinking of someone else but I only remember one incident of somebody giving you gaff. Undeserved I might add. Something to do with table saw technique maybe? Modest you may be but that's not unusual with the best craftsmen. It is good to have you back.

    Paul!!! Good to see you back.
    In the US this perverted idea of “blood and soil” over “constitutional principles” is the most radical and anti-democratic and anti-Conservative idea I have heard in my lifetime.

    Funny the manners and ​noblesse oblige that come from the comfort of wealth. Well... at least for some.

    Ive always had issues with severe movement and checking with madrone (or as we call it, arbutus) as it dries. Did you stabilize it with something?

    There's probably a way to select, copy and paste images and other screen elements with the Apple toys, but I don't use them. Touchscreen Android and Windows devices can do it without a mouse.

    With an iPhone or iPad just press in the center if a pic and a c&p menu will pop up. Chrome works better for posting pics to the forum than does Safari.
