« Part 5: You just never know.. Part 6 of Craft Markets.. series Part 7: Yesterday at Eagle Farm Markets, Brisbane. »

Here is my stall at Kelvin Grove Markets…... before THE storm….

Showcasing the new boards I made THIS week…

Sold one and had an order for another … then the storm hit…

Signs and two small boards front right were from last week… other than that all 26 new works were made in the last three days….

One more shot of after the storm…

My friend Heather had her stand entirely demolished… she was at the bottom of the hill and bore the brunt of the devastation…. heartbreaking…

Wow, that’s terrible , Larry. When I first started reading this I thought you were going to get a storm of people and show us an empty booth. Glad you are okay.

Very nice works you had on display too!! You have been busy cranking them out.
The laser cut sign looked great!.

I am glad that there were no casuallties. We in the Northeast are still recovering from the storm we had. The weather has not been good to the people of the world. Your table looks great. I like the board with the saying “life is to short cut on an ugly board”

I am glad you are ok.

A question, what is the wood you used in the cutting boards in the second picture? In particular the left front cutting board with the wide strips. It has a beautiful pattern and I would like to try it.
