« Part 18: Day55 and still a few to go...!! Part 19 of 150 [Cutting] Boards by the end of September. series no next part

I did not reach my goal of 150 boards by the end of September..


Final tally was 95 Cutting boards… 25 butter boards…17 trevits… 7 half finished Bandsaw boxes. 3 Lazy Larrys….1 coffee table… 2 signs… half an entertainment unit..and a parrot in a hessian bag..


And every one different.. well almost…

You sound disappointed. Let’s see…. you did how many boards that didn’t count, furniture projects, sign for business and Torque, oh, and started a website/business…..created a dust storm covering Australia….

Ya, it’s not like you were slacking off.
You are awesome, 149 boards is still acceptable in my book.

I figured it out! You work in your sleep! Your from another planet! Does Kryptonite affect you? Can you walk on water? Whats a hessian bag?

Well done Larry. You have made much more stuff in one month than I have produced in 13 years (not that that is anything to brag about with my production figures). Anyway you actually did much better than planned what with the extra projects and all. I wish you great success with the Melbourne Show. I’m very very impressed with your work ethic and of course the quality of your products. You are a great representative for your country and a great inspiration to us truly lazy guys. Looking forward to the Melbourne posts.

What no partridge in a pair tree?

You know if you add it all up 95 + 25 + 17 + 3.5 (7 half boxes) + 3 + 1 + 2 + 1 (The parrot) that equals 147 ½ in total. Not bad with all of the other projects you did along the way.

Congrats on the competition of all of this work.

I will miss the follow-ups on this adventure.

I am hoping you will post some pictures of all of the creations in one place.

Larry: It was a great try. I guess if you had fewer hours in the bed, you might have been able to make it. But then we say work safely, don’t work when you are tired. Think clearly.

Maybe your goal was a stretch, but you gave it a winners try. Great job. I hope the sales at the show allow you to pay for your new Tool (Not toy).
