It looks to me you’re doing alright no matter what you do.

Hey Charley, I like all your projects. I like to make the small boxes and quick projects that give instant gratification using unique materials, like some of yours. Nice work.

Thanks for the comments Charlie on the cutting boards. It doesn’t take that long to make one. The sanding is the hard part. If you have a wide belt sander or know someone who does you can make one in a few hours.

did I mention it’s the cheapest I’ve found? last summer a 15×30 foot piece was $165 including ups shipping. Most of the other places and local vendors were double that…

I’m going to be doing the holiday shop (santa’s work shop) for a few of the local schools in my area ! I’m looking for ideas for fast , easy projects with little cost to make , so I can donate them for the under privileged childeren to give to their parents for the holidays (x-mas & such) . Childern of all walks of life also find joy in giving to their parents and other family members on the holidays , It gives them a sense of pride,and happyness! The school asks that I make sure that it would be something of a non-religious background to all cultures !If anyone has any plans or ideas please send them to me soon december 17th is my deadline. Thank you everyone that took the time to read this !Happy thanks giving!!!!!

Thanks for the comments. Yes my Dad built the boat out of 2 inch pine. I added that as a project. Check it out.
