Or Crazy Mary meets Lazy Larry

A huge thanks to Larry (degoose) for the design idea and all else that you so generously contribute to this site. You are the essence of what it is best about being an LJ.
Just a couple of months ago, I would have said making this board was impossible, way beyond my skill level. But LumberJocks is a magical place. It is almost unbelievable how much my knowledge, skills, and confidence has grown as a direct result of the time I have spent on this site. This project was a challenge for me, but it turned out to be a really fun one. Dustbunny’s (aka Lisa, aka Xena) encouragement and tips along the way gave my confidence a boost and helped me get it right.
Now that I know I can make precision cuts and glue up a lot of pieces of wood at one time without going into a full-blown panic attack, I think I am ready to tackle some serious segmented turning. I also have about a dozen different board designs that have popped into my head to try…
So many projects to look forward to and friends like you to share them with makes Mary Anne a happy LJ.
