Hey Kris...get well soon!

That stripwood drying rack is great. I have to put that on my "when I'm retired" list of things to do! (Only 4 months away)....

Well, just a short note to address my reduced posting activity.

As some of the forum members know, I'm currently experiencing a major set-back in my health. I'm having to postpone the required surgeries which 'may' allow me to sit/stand at a workbench. This is due to the high-risk post-surgical issues. I've worked with 4 surgeons and 3 hemotologist in an effort over the past year plus, but all teams,
including my cancer surgeon are saying that the benefits probably do not warrent the very high risks.

Bottom line is that due to the severe discomfort while trying to model, my future postings will probably continue to be sporadic. (And I just got a dedicated studio to work in.)

NOT looking for any shoulders to cry on, but just addressing the current situation of my not posting in the usual manner as expected.

Life is to short to build all of the models I want to.

Wow, that's a shame! Hopefully your health will improve over time. (If you're still able to sit at the computer, I'd suggest you consider taking your posts on this build and turning them into a series of articles for a model RR magazine.)
