      Well, here it is!
      She 7"x9"x1"painted with acrylic. for the border, I sanded with 80 grit, wet it down, let sit for a minute, threw it in the microwave for a min. then use Oak Gel Stain, wiping it off almost immediately, after a short while ((?) I sanded with 120, then 20 grit paper, then applied a coat of natural Watco Danish Oil.

      Again C&C Welcome

                Something that size without resorting to a tourniquet is something to be proud of JP.

                      Thank You

                      Well how about that, we live in Rocky Ford until I was six (1945) Then we moved to Ordway and the open the Butler Locker Service. A small meat processing plant and lockers for rent. I left Ordway in about '69. what was your wife's maiden name, might have know jher or the family, we had lots of customers in the Karval district. People think I'm goofy when I talk about Punkin Center, I bet she knows

                        It is a small world indeed. Her maiden name was Leonard. Her brother was well known in the area.

                          It has been a while, what about the first names, Leonard is jumping around in the back of my mind, but able to tie down completely. Better yet what was her father's name?
