My observation is in regard to the glue lines.
When assembling boards made up of many small parts, as many of Lazy Larry’s are, it is essential that the glue lines must be as perfect as possible. Imperfect glue lines may pass inspection when they are new, but time will tell on them.
As moisture, mostly from cleaning the boards, intrudes in the glue lines they are weakened. The moisture also contibutes to less than tolerable wood movement. Eventually, imperfect glue lines cause the self destruction of the boards.
To my eye, Larry has the art of making tight, straight glue lines perfected.
He certainly produces thousands of glue lines.
He must have acquired the knack of getting it right!
Nice work, Larry.

I still wonder if this is your main day job or if you also have a job working for someone else in addition to this surprisingly prolific board making business.

Don- As I recall, Larry answers your question in the video on his “About” page on, but the answer, as I recall is he started doing this FT in the last few years.

A fun little slideshow. You’ve got to keep going if you’re ever going to make it through that warehouse full of wood next to your shop!
