THX guys!

I like it this organized, so thisnis fine by me... But rest assured, I also buy paints I already have, because I forgot I already bought a replacement pot.

Nein Günter, ich bin nicht zum Schreiner geworden. Obwohl meine bessere Hälfte beschlossen hat ich soll unsern neuen Künchentisch bauen anstelle einen zu kaufen. (No Günter, I have not turned carpenter. But my better half has decided that I should build a new kitchen table instead of us just buying one.)

Oh how much I would love to make Derby, but as you know it is better this way.

Cheers,

Burkhard

Unfortunetely no... the plans were all in my head. If you want I can give you the measurements of the pieces and tell you where they go, though.
