but this is EXTREMELY well done.....the changing of shades on the outside looks great....and the text "goes".....it is hard to explain y....but it does.....

Monkey:

The artist is showing, very well done and a very professional layout.

I am very impressed with the level of work - well done.

Vito, you need to live and smell life a little more then you will start to understand. There is a big world waiting for you and good etiquette can open many doors.

LOL - vito, yes, it is silverware - you know, those pointy metal things you bypassed when you ate that pizza in the challenge a few weeks back!??!

I guess I am getting old, if I'm posting books the youn'ens haven't heard of...

Thanks for standing up for me, Rod!

Seriously, thank you both for the kudos. I was pretty pleased with how this turned out. Best of my three for this week.

You refinish furniture? Good for you! I salvaged an old ice chest in my parents' basement and my dad said it was mine if I could resurrect it. One summer later and $1000 value, he wants it back! (he's teasing) But that's a really nice thing to do with/for your grandfather.

lol...i wouldn't go THAT far.....i mean....i can.....i'm working on a couch, a chair, a GORGEOUS rustic coffee table, and a beautiful end table(also rustic).....

i've had some problems....like not finish sanding enough....which i didn't notice until i finished staining..lol....(you see little circles from the circular sander) and i was almost done with one and he was in the middle of moving to a new house (with a chapel on the property that he could use for his church)(That's right my grandfather is the coolest....a pastor too )
so the movers got some dings into it such a shame....but more sanding for me and it was fine.....

wow...long message.....lol it WOULD be nice....but they are paying me...so it isn't JUST out of the kindness of my heart
lol

they are helping me pay for vacations i'm goin on with them....so indirectly they are paying for me to go...lol

You're using a power sander?!!
Anyway, I am sure you're doing a fine job, and that you will treasure your vacation together.

Okay, you babble pusses, back to the subject at hand, which happens to be--yes, Betsy--your best of three (though I did like that hot pepper). Rod's right: the artist is showing.
