« Part 7: Today... Part 8 of Boards. series Part 9: Abstract.... »

As you may have read from a previous post, I had an order for some cheese boards to be sold at a farmers market at the Big Pineapple on the Sunshine Coast…
Richard and Julie came by the workshop and perused my stock and in the end there were quite a few boards ordered including a few chopping boards and some sushi boards. [17 items all up]
Deb and I went up to the Grand Re-Opening to have a look [and take some pics for you to see]

That is the Big Pineapple… a tourist attraction since before I was born… or nearly…

Some outside shots…

There is also an inside undercover area where Richard and Julie have their Continental Sausages [salamis] and Cheeses… so having my boards there is relevant…[they checked with the organisers first and got the OK]

That’s Richard…

A new counter has been ordered and some of my boards will make it onto the counter at the front as well as decorating the back wall..

Wow, that is a big Pineapple.

I have a feeling you’ll do real well with this, Larry.

that pineapple looks like a sure thing
for a pineapple board
done in the style of your tumbling blocks
log glue-up
it is hexagonal as is the tumbling block one

just add a tuft handle
and you will have a great sale
from this place to the tourists
maybe their logo and name burnt in

i see many of my favorite boards there already

good on you mate

Great display you got there and it does complement the salmai and cheese stand.

Hope you do really well.

Your pieces really stand out. I’m sure this will get you more orders. I agree with “Patron” about a pineapple serving dish with a concaved center. Best wishes

Larry: Looks like a great sales venue.

Good luck. Are they purchasing them from you or is it being handled on consignment?

It looks the Yankees have not seen yet the Big Banana, The Big Merino, The Big Orange or your favourite, I think, The Big VB Can. Let me invite them to see more big stuff in Australia by clicking on http://www.wilmap.com.au/bigstuff/default.htm
And well done, Larry. Wish you all success.
