A fellow called me last week to ask if I could make a couple of wooden stands that he could use as going-away gifts. When he mentioned what he wanted to mount on the wood, I knew it was something I wanted to make.
This is an ejection handle from a fighter jet - how many other woodworkers can say they've worked on a project this cool?
Photos of the other one will be coming; the finish is still drying. Meanwhile, I'm heading out to the backyard with the kids, to watch the jets fly overhead.
