Do you know if he would make more?

Nice. I'd definately like to see some photos.
And I'm still looking for someone who wil make one, that is, unless we just
wind up making poor Phlip have to work at Pennsic on it. But I would
like to have a setup before then and transport it out there. I think taking
a day off from fighting to cook at camp would be really nice.

I spoke with Master Fritz this weekend and he said he might be available
around July if I can find a decent set of plans for it.
