    It's my understanding that the Red Army started off so poorly led because Stalin had purged many key officers in the 1930s. Have you read anything different Brian?

    Nice job. I think the bench looks great! Nothing wrong with having nice shop furniture - you should look at Derek Cohen's website - even fixtures he builds are pretty.

    I'm surprised the 3 large holes you made didnt correct this. But I agree with you - if it's not sticking you need more air holes, somehow. I think I would put another row of 3 holes near the bottom....
