Nice tip there. I have a old roll of veneer from a old workplace that I want to be using on one soon! quick tip, a nice sharp pair of scissors or good razor saw will help get the "boards" nice and smooth on the ends. You are on a great start into the hobby! Jody

I like it! Nice tip Brotha, methinks I'll be using it soon.

PS have you got the scale boxes yet? i sent em last weekend, but have been hearing horror stories about mail crossing the broders lately.

Thanks, hope you do use it. No i haven't but it's only monday. i usually only get mail from tuesday to friday for some reason.
