Very nice work,

Thank you. They aren't pretty, but I know how to use them pretty well.

Built some window boxes this weekend for my little fixer upper of a house. No furniture grade craftsmanship by any means. They're pretty rough but pass the test from 10 feet away. Will likely paint when the house gets painted eventually.

Just finished up the flag pole. 6 coats of marine spar varnish really brought out the beautiful color of that mahogany. Had a tough time finding a threaded nut that was 1/4-28 thread to receive the tightening bolt, but I found one at my local HW store and set it into the stem with some 5-minute epoxy and it works great. I just used some wire to tie the flag onto the screw eyes for now since he's using a nautical flag he has and those things are a PITA to put on and take off. This way it'll be easier for him. I'll be shipping it to my buddy in Michigan tomorrow and he promised to send me a pic when he has it installed on the boat and I'll post that here when I get it.
