    That's really nice! Lots of beautiful contrast in the woods. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6"> I found a great link on gluing oily hardwoods: <a href="http://www.wood-database.com/wood-articles/gluing-oily-tropical-hardwoods/" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.wood-database.com/wood-articles/gluing-oily-tropical-hardwoods/</a> for future reference. Obviously walnut is not tropical but the same rules should apply when dealing with a particularly oily piece.

    Hallo Tysonspapa, this shrek is very good and looks very strong. Lot of hard work.<br>One more video in the list, pending. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">
