Nice Larry.

I’m sure some of the designs will blow our socks off.

Very nice gesture from Scott.

I’d hardly call you a ‘beginner!’ But new design ideas are always a good thing. Nice gift, SASmith. And Larry, do you have a bottle cap collection? Displayed?

Lucky Larry, that has a nice ring to it. There is a program available off the net used for laminated designs that is used by bowl turners and board builders alike its called Design Pro. It’s a collection of three programs made by Llyod Johnson. I bought it. If what you have received is anything like it and from your board picture it does look similar you really are going to have fun with designs.

Look very forward to seeing what comes out of your lamination shop.
