6:30 AM. Doors open in a half hour. Of course there’s a lot of activity with people setting up.

My booth,

You may notice the unfinished dresser on right hand side of picture. That’s next weeks posting.

A few more boxes, spalted poplar tops. Boxes are pine & Ash.

I’ll check back later!

Great setup Monte, I’ll be doing my very first vendor booth in a small town here in TX called Blanco Market Days I’ve gotten a lot of information here on LJ from my forum topic, not knowing what to expect I’m a bit nervous and trying to get all my ducks in a roll. LOL

Not designed as such, but can be mad that way.

I hope your show goes smoothly and financially rewarding. Those are some mitey nice boxes and other wood crafts.
That sure is an early show…6:30am and doors open at 7am. I am doing my first indoor show in Mississippi on Nov 30th & Dec 1st. It will be nice being indoors and not having to set up my tent.

Looks good, I like how you let the natural rugged beauty of the wood show through. Great work.

Well, I guess I read these posts backwards as I read the “after action” report first. I did want to comment on that wild looking Poplar!
