Mark, nice paint storage.  Built or bought?  I need this so bad.

I bought them from a guy on Etsy.com, called myshelfguy.  He sells them for $30.  I don't know if that's a good price or not, but it was fine for me since I have absolutely no woodworking skills.  They're good quality and unfinished, so you can paint or stain them whatever you want.

Baron,

I don't believe I was shouting...and as far as amusing that my photo was attached at the time the original post was submitted....I had my photo attached, but after I hit the submit button it came off so I had to work on getting to stay. It wasn't like I was trying to deceive follow members to post their's and then I wasn't. I encountered a minor technical issue to resolve. I believe you are the only one annoyed by this, and if so.....

 

No annoyance here... but if this is the post you are referring to where your photo is attached, as you can see, it’s a stealth photo... 

Now I am curious...

The photo in my avatar is a bit old, so here's a new picture of me.
Yes, the smile is a bit forced.  Sorry.

 

Cheers,
Mark

This picture was taken by my daughter on the day I was to shave my beard off, my wife was never a fan and had great fun comparing me to a wired haired fox terrier. I of course liked it but 18 months and a few beard oil bottles later it's day had come.

Bish, I love your photo on the Falkands. The only thing better would be if you went down there on a Vulcan!

except they’d have to drop him from 10,000 feet.

what Mike doesn’t say is he was serving in the armed forces there.

Great thread.

Using all caps is considered shouting in netiquette.

No one said you're trying to deceive anyone, and I'm not annoyed.  Again, it's just amusing that your pic is missing from a thread you started to ask people to show pics of themselves.

As far as your disappearing photo goes, my first post in this thread was to ask you what host you used, as a first step to offering to help resolve whatever problem you might have posting photos.

Most recent. A couple months back, I got my "high performance" endorsement. The owner/instructor keeps this plane at the airport I part time at. We flew down to Coldwater MI and back....I just had to pay for fuel and buy him lunch! "Propblast Cafe"...taxi right on up to it!

Funny thing...my very first commission build was this very airplane...almost 20 years ago. Ray, the owner, still has it on his desk!

Don't know why you guy's have trouble with hair ...... ( I use Miracle Grow...)

 

 

 

So do I!

 Miracle grow? I just don't get mine cut! (believe it or not...my wife manages a hair salon...free or not...I don't want no haircut!)

This is about the only recent pic I have, that ya can see the mop.

This is last seasons "dumb luck buck". I came up over a small hill on the edge of my yard, to look out into the woods before heading in to my stand. He was all of about 15' away, down the other side of the hill. He went far enough, that it was much easier to go back home, then down to my folks place and go get him with the canoe.
