    Your Dad did a great job!
  • That's awesome! So how much would Dad charge to make a couple for a good Ol' Georgia Boy? Tell pop that he's got a fan!

    Mike, that's awesome! I gotta get off my butt and make one too, though I doubt it'll be carved - or that cool!

    Very nice Mike. I once considered doing more woodworking in my retirement (not that I've retired yet) but guess what took over?

    I should have guessed that it's been done before.

    I'll have to think of a design and add my name to his list of customers.

    Don't worry about it buddy. Both will fit in the large at the same time if you leave room for the dome probe in between.
  • What a nice gift - he must really like your pizzas!
