Very nice boards. Looks like you need more space for them.
Good luck Larry!

I am not game to count…Altho I think I will have made over the 150 by Melbourne.. I won’t be taking that many…
I am happy to have got this much done and still having fun,...and a few side projects as well..
there is still a few days left….... and IF I wasn’t so LAZY would be there now.
Thank you all for your encouragement

If you hadn’t done the side projects, you’d be over 200!! ;-)) As long as you’re having fun, that’s the main thing.

150 wow! Way cool, after I finished the 2 boards I made for my good friend’s wedding present. I finally got back to making my wife’s 2 that I had previously started. I have 3 people that want them. How much do you normally charge Degoose? I don’t mind making them but I need to make it worthwhile as well. My wife and I are thinking of hitting the land of down under next yr. Where do you live? I was in Perth for 4 weeks a long time ago, she has never been. If it works out I’ll buy the first round (smile)...

You are crankin’ !! You said you might not take all the boards to the show.
These are going to sell like hot cakes.
My opinion, for what it’s worth…..
Take everything with you…sell sell sell….Get home…. make more !!

Ditto to all the above!
Larry, you are a board-makin’-machine!
That first picture looks like a bunch of pet boards hanging around the workshop begging for… food?... sawdust?
