I chose a pattern that will closely resemble a DE "Special" I saved pictures of and shared with Dan.

He said he was up for the challenge.


He won't have a problem. He told me the issues are always getting the layout right. Once that's done the rest of it isn't very hard if one has a steady hand. PS. Dan has a steady hand. :)

Thanks!

It's been a long time coming, but worth the wait.

Very nice Roger. Will we see some of the work in progress on Dan's tables at the Vintage Gunners Cup event?

Frank,

That’s up to Dan. I can’t make it and we have not discussed it.

Dan is going to be hit and miss at the Vintagers. He has a wedding to attend on Saturday and a Rehearsal Dinner Friday evening. Those who want to see him best be there on Thursday. His dad will be manning the both on Friday and I don't believe they will be attending the event on Saturday because of the wedding. Indeed as they say, he has a full plate.
