Simple design or not Gary, looks great. Awesome work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

When u say not counting glue time do you mean time for glue to dry or gluing it together. Just after an idea from machining, glueing ( not drying time ) sanding & finishing

Nice. I, too, like the simplicity. After going on a recent wood-bying excursion with me, my younger son (8) has decided that he wanted to try making something with wood. I pulled out some mahogany and curly maple, and we've started making a small cheese cutting board for his mom for Christmas. It's amazing how satisfying something so simple can be
