Re: SKETCHUP AND ASPIRE

Sorry to confuse anyone!

Re: Easy Bottle Carrier Maker

I'm working with a buddy of mine who is trying to start a nano-brewery so your post is very timely! Thanks for the download! I'm hoping to make different sizes available in the tasting room when it opens. I am definitely 'stealing' the 'combustible prototype' label! Here's to better health for all o...

Re: Latest Guitar Build

Ken,

Wow! The fabric idea is crazy! And if you own a direct-to-garment printer, the sky's the limit for what the design of the fabric can be... Definitely got me thinking about my next project! I'm thinking pineapple uke!!!
