That's all I can stands. I can't stands no more!

Popeye said that.  And me,too.

I've stopped making banjo rims and building guitars.  I sold all my guitar making tools and wood to some students at the Redwing Lutheiry School.  And I sold my rim making lathe to a guy in Kansas City.

I just bought an official wood turning lathe and have started turning bowls and little boxes.  Lots of fun!

So long and thanks for all the fish.

Dan
