Shipmaven - that is an Extra sweet gift and one that I know you will cherish for many, many years to come. Red - I also have the minwax, I had read that somewhere and picked it up. Although, I use the carnauba wax for the most part. That is a nifty ruler and I will look for one the next time we going supply shopping. From where I live it is an all day trek to get to a supply house, shop, have lunch, then back again. So I go as few times as possible, and try to get everything in one fell swoop. Ah, the piano...I took piano lessons while attending parochial school. The nun was 180 yrs old, she had no patience and when she had heard enough from me, she would push me off the bench and throw another poor student down onto the bench for them to play. It ruined me from ever being able to play the piano, or any other instrument for that matter. That was 42 years ago and I am still messed up over it. LOL If you ever do take lessons, I wish you a much better experience.
