    Default "Miracle Mile"

    Jack: Well, I was close. Much nicer than the Miracle Mile "district" in Tucson

    It's true. 'Miracle Miles' are only occasionally an actual mile, and are almost never miracles.

    Great job! I have to do something like that now to replace the low (36") wrought iron fence around my pool here in So CA. Got a a lot of good ideas from looking at your work. Thanks!

    Great Job Jack. I couldn't convince the misses after showing her the pix that we "needed" a fence too.

    Great job. You may give some thought to growing vines on your beautiful fence. The fact that it is made of steel will require maintenance and the vines would make it difficult to repaint. None the less it is a beautiful addition to your home.

    Default NICE work!

    Jack,

    Nice garage! The steel bench hinges out far enough that the bench can fold up vertical? I see the adjustable feet you put on the legs. Good idea.
    Was reading your narrative and thought to myself; "this person writes" and then seen the WGA sign on the wall by the garage door.
    I too like jigs, and wood works fine for me too.
    You sure did a nice job of it. Beautiful looking fence, the way it turned out. I've never done anything like that, but I would say you should be able to smile pretty big when visitors come over to visit and comment on it. Kudos.

    Default Great Job, Jack

    Don't sell yourself , short. That's a fantastic looking fence. What brand of cold saw do you have? Is it high rpm or low? Looks like it would beat using an abrasive cut-off saw ten times over, especially inside. Thanks for sharing all the pics and the experience.
