Assembled ones:
	About a group noun, James wrote "It is, and has always been, "The
assembled Galooterati.""
	Indeed, someone can search the archives, but from Digest 20 or so onward 
to a year or so ago, I recall most Galoots started their message with 
either a simple "Galoots:" or "Assembled ones", or just "Assembled".
	I vote for using the the ancient and honorable, simple version - 
"Assembled".  It should drive other tool folks nuts.
	Oh and speaking of nuts, if Tony thinks it is hot in Pennsylatucky, then I 
truly live in the Florida mountains!

You do, you know! One man's interesting interpretation:

When we saw his work on display in Cocoa Beach, Judy had to have one. I've
still got to frame it. She's soooo patient with me ;-)

Well, obviously.

To properly frame a picture,
you've got to find a blade, make a skewed shooting
plane (probably after researching plane making, and
making a coupla' easier practice planes e.g.
scrub, jack), make a mitre jack
http://www.cornishworkshop.co.uk/wwmitrejack.html
Decide on yer' moulding shape, make a scratch
stock and cutter
http://www.geocities.com/plybench/scratch.html
(come on! making a moulding
plane would be ridiculous!), make a sticking board,
generate your stock, and then make a frame.

Sounds like anything under 3 years would be nothing
short of heroic :-)

Paul,

First, let me apologize for being such a slow responder. I ought to spend
less time lurking when there's a reply to be made but that desire to learn
more most often overcomes.
Second, let me say thanks for NOT top-posting; it's a disgusting habit that
ought to cost Microsoft a penalty each time an e-mail goes out that way!

You have no idea how many good ideas I've gleaned from your postings.

Living in Florida and being fortunate enough to have a dedicated shop
rather than using the garage has resulted in many compromises. I definitely
consider myself a GIT, as my hand-cut DTs are still not w/o reproach and
the number of tools I've built is very limited. However, I claim, as my exc 
use,
the need to complete said shop w/ all manner of hand & tailed apprentices
so that I can seal out the weather and protect those finer hand-tools from
rust.
You see, I've been building the workshop for several years now and only
recently replaced most of the visquene windows w/ plexiglass, and yesterday
hung a pair of doors to replace the tarpauline that'd been one of the entra 
nces.

As my out-of-date web-site illustrates, many of my projects were done w/
electron burners. However, as the big responsibilities near completion and
I enclose the remaining open portions of the shop, I see more and more hand
work in the offing.
I think the mitre jack is one of the next two hand-tools to make.

Cheers,
Gary
