    Went out to Iowa over the weekend and installed the vase for Mom & Dad. There's 4 self tapping

    I did what you are talking about and used my sign software to do the drawings. (Basically just
    a CAD program). When it came to loads like the garage door header (I did a 2 wide garage door

    I know this is hard to believe, but stripping some 12 ga. wire out of romex and making divining

    That's awesome gary.Thanks Chris. I did connect with the owner, we swapped phone numbers, so I

    Back in the mid 70's I did a custom paint job on a pull truck. I recently got a call from the

    down and cont...
