Not much to show for Bryan's stand since he spent 6 hours sanding. But the wood looks really nice. I went the opposite route and got my stand about 80% complete. It weighs about 2 tons. Solid 4x4's.



However the Santa's Brown Sleigh pulled up and dropped off a few goodies.... THE PLANTACULAR has arrived.




and Bryan's Dual stage reg showed up as well..... wait till we shine it up!


and the leftover pile is getting huge!

Those stem plants are going to need a substrate to get rooted in or they may go by the way side.

Keep up the good work!

We are going to be setting up the 55 the same way the 29 is set up. it will be good to go... the only problem is that the UPS guy doesn't get to our neighborhood until 9 PM and we both have to be up at the crack of dawn. It will get done today.
