Wel I seen what and how I can keep going doing more pictures. Today I traded the fruit basket for a truck load of wood that I can keep burning on. A friend of mine came by today and wanted to see all these burnings that I have been doing and wanted to buy the fruit basket. Well he also had a load of wood that he would give me to burn and to cut up for more projects. I went over to his house and he begin to load up my truck and ended up loading it very close to the top of the bed. I do feel I got the better end of the deal but we tradedand we both ended up feeling pretty good about the deal. So Now I can say I really sold my first piece today. I’m trying to get as many done as I can before the opening day of our local Flee Market on Memorial Day. I’m hopeing to have a varity of different wood burnings and of my wood products. Thank you all for giving me the cofidence in keep on going and produceing all these wood burnings Hope you all have enjoyed them as much as I have made them. Thank You Jim
