i figured i would put all these in 1 post instead of taking up all home page
just some quick stuff to sell at craft fairs. the napkin holders are a good use of scrap wood and go together fast last pic is of some book marks i made again from left overs got the idea for the napkin holders for a issue of wood mag. saw the idea for the book marks here some time ago don’t remember who (sorry)

I guess you have been busy!! Posting a bunch all at once is a good idea, so as not to monopolize the home page.
Nice work on all the projects. I like the color choices, and especially like your cutting boards :)

I remember seeing this post by closetguy on the bookmarks- http://lumberjocks.com/closetguy/blog/9097

I was wondering what the napkin holders look like without the napkins ? they are hiding the wood work.

U make the boards look simply divine with the maple, and I like the napkin holders,
I too am starting to see the benefits of markets,, not the one in my home town tho it is a fruit veg and plant market and no one really wants to buy wooden products, or if they do they want it for not much more than the cost of the wood,,
I have been invited to attend a series of woodshows with the wee beastie and the first one at Maryborough was a blast,, only took a few samples for display,, no for sale items… bugger … I could have sold a heap.
That is why I have set a target of 150 or so boards and bits and pieces for Melbourne Working with Wood Show in October,,
BTW mate. Try the trevits I make.. might be a winner… I have sold heaps.

Regards and good luck at the markets.\

Very nice. Great collection of craft show items. All very beautifull wood and designs.

I too would like to see the napkin holders without the napkins.

Great work as usual.

Keep it up.

I hope that is 2 1/2 hours for a heap of them.
As to the pic being cut short, when you uploaded it to the photo site,..,eg Photobucket you need to resize to 640 by 480 to enable all the pic to show.. You can resize now and the pics will be fine.
Also if you open the pic in a separate tab or window you will see the whole pic ,..
Hope this helps,,]
Btw nice work,,. hope you are charging accordingly,
Larry
