The first is Fisher’s Ghost of Compbelltown, NSW, Australia, an annual festival to relive the murder of Fisher, a wealthy Compbelltown man, when his ghost appeared and pointed to his grave while his agent claimed Fisher was in England while the agent was receiving the rent from Fisher’s tenants. This story is more than 100 years old but true.
And your age is no more than 55 years or 30 plus.

Close but no cigars… the doors are for a dart board cabinet… although the thought of doors for the Apothecary Cabinet are not without merit… thanks… maybe next time..
The other two will be cut into circles and have a 1958 penny inlaid… These are cheese boards and will be presented to a couple of great guys who were born in 1958 and joined the Navy with me in 1974.. nuff said.

I guessed some cabinet door but could have never guessed the dart board.

The grain matching looks great.
