Foam blocks cut, set in sections.499 viewsSince I've built several frame ups and WOF's, thought I might stop here and think things thru. Sent a email to JD, wondering what he might think of using the WOF process instead of the standard frame. D'oh, ask the WOF man a question with WOF in it, what ya think his answer was? WOF all the way! So, here we go.OB Nut
