    Some of my tissue boxes

    I reckon I must have made around 100 tissue boxes and I kept around 10 for myself over the years, numerous other boxes were also produced and finished their locations over other continents as well. It was a great hobby for me over those early retirement years some were even hand delivered.

    car battery problem, any advice please?
