Before taking off for a second scoop of England this summer Marsha, I mean Chris, gave me a key to the blog. Silly rabbit.

In the last couple of weeks I’ve found some interesting woodworking references and will post a few while Chris is away. I will try to refrain from cat pictures, but can tell you there will be monkeys.

To start things off let’s discuss Chris’ obsession with his beloved (his word) $12 jack plane. Longtime LAP-landers are familiar with this infatuation and it is highly likely that many of you have your own little tool crushes. Did you know his nickname for the plane is Lola?

A while back I put together a little hommage for Chris and Lola. I call it “Schwarzlandia”:

Late one evening a large object fell through the mists shrouding the teeny-tiny Duchy of Schwarzlandia. Once the dust had settled and the sneezing had stopped the bravest of the brave Schwarzlandians rushed out to investigate.

      • joefromoklahoma says:

        interesting, that… the song was originally recorded as “….Coca Cola.” When the BBC wouldn’t play it with the commercial reference in it, Ray Davies flew back from the States to re-do the line as “….cherry cola” to get it on the air.
