But what I really want to see is photos of the slot car track

I'm going to try and come of for the next Seattle show.
It was tricky - I had to build the stand around the bike. Required lots of clamps, a level, blocks, and maybe a floor jack. Also required disassembly and modifications on the fly. It works great, but I'd like to come up with something a bit more elegant. DD likes it - can't remember if he called it "industrial" or "steam punk."

I sent you an email with a design you might like. Check your spam box the attachments were large.

Wow, I'd forgotten about that. But it brings back memories of a couple hours with a router making this stinky purpleheart-and-maple sandwich:


I should really get around to finishing that thing.

Nice work, Alex. Very inspirational. I've got two wall hooks that need to be replaced with something nicer and sturdier... So, I was going to ask how the carving was done, but it's been answered. However, I now must assume you've got a CAD file for the Campagnolo logo? Any chance I could get a copy of that file? Pleeeease

Alex,
If you do decide to offer a stand like the one DD has now, I would definitely be interested in purchasing one from you. That is some of the nicest woodwork I have seen in years. Good to hear that you are getting some good people to watch the bikes while you are gone DD. Yep, Another khaki brother is a good choice for you...............................




..........If there are no Marines available to stand watch. let me know when you get in-country so I can begin your monthly magazine shipments, my doggie in 'Stan is at home nursing a hangover and ready to ride in the USA. You're up Senior Chief!

Bill
