I think this Lazy Larry guy misspelled “crazy.” What a lot of work, but they’re coming out great!

Hey degoose – is that Incra positioner on your table saw? If so, what do you think of it for that application? I have one on my router table, and quite love it.

When I hit all six numbers on the Lottery, I’m bringing you over here with a container ship full of Rosewood, Camphor, French Walnut and everything else you use, plus a bunch of Wee Beasties.
Then, I’m going to put out an open invitation to all LJ’s to come on over.
When we find a place big enough to hold all of us, we are going to have a “Bread Board Jamboree” !!!

And while I’m dreaming, my shop is going to have a wall made out of that French Walnut so I can enjoy it just by looking over from time to time.

Your dust collection system must be getting a heck of a work out for sure…..

You are definitely going to make the headlines in Melbourne!

The sigh came out fantastic.

Great job on the sign, and the weeks worth of boards.

I love my Incra TS III. A useful addition to the saw.

Larry those are fine looking boards. Have you considered also selling them as custom ping pong paddles to the Chinese. Think of all the potential customers. The only problem I see is the resources. There probably isn’t enough wood in Australia. However, I don’t doubt for a minute your capacity to produce them (based on current trends).

i think that larry’s secret is the he is really NOT lazy…and that while we are sleeping he is working—-and this is true…but what we didnt know is that while we are awake he is working too…

I’m just getting into more woodworking projects, and cutting boards look like an interesting and relatively simple project. Do you have somewhere you can point me to read more? Tips on materials, glue, finish, methods? I’d like to start with simple multi-species straight strips and go from there. Thanks.
