Ha Ha. I have it on my computer, though I can’t remember the last time I looked at it.

This was a good question Marcel

I would like to note that Paul Lesieur PM me one minute before the today’s winner with the right answer, and chose to allow someone else to win.

Paul, that was a nice gesture and Thank You for sharing the prize.

Thanks to my Audel’s 1920"s era carpentry books.

Veranda, been a long time since I heard that. My parents are Canadian born and my mother called the porch a veranda.

Paul, I had a set of those books in the late 60’s, don’t know what happened to them. They helped me join the Carpenters Union in Florida in 1970.
Very good books. :slight_smile:

I found a set at a garage sale 10 or so years ago, the old ones where the tools are all hand type. Snapped up the set for 5 or 6 bucks.
The carpentry trade goes back thousands of years, that’s something isn’t it?

Congratulations David :smiley:

What Carpenters Union in Florida? I didn’t know they had those down here, unless it was government work.

Orlando Local. I lived in St. Cloud with my Brother and worked on a new Tupperware Office building built on the Orange Blossom Trail from Kissimmee to Orlando.
Went back to Maine that year when I was drafted to go in the army. Too hot for me anyways. :wink:
