    I roast my own coffee...does that count?

    though sometimes Thom, I am not always certain I'm on the same page. I'm slow that way sometimes.

    Maybe challenging times brings out the best and worst of us?

    Why can't we all just get a bong?

    Uncle Percy could roll a cigarette holding it in his left hand while sifting a little tobacco out of a tin in his right. He would lick it, stick it in his mouth and have it lit in 10 seconds or less.

    He was a good guy, my grandmother's fourth or fifth husband and left her well taken care of.

    I wonder how they did that? Cut the fret a bit longer then the slot. Trim off the tang and then hammer the overhanging fret down into position. After that a lot of sanding like when you roll the edge of a normal fret and board. It looks kewl. I wonder if it feels any nicer.

    IDK but I did the opposite to mine. Rolled it and rounded the frets back. I think I would not like the feel of that one.
