Glad you have found some recent success in selling these lovelies!

They certainly appear to be nicely executed and I like quite a few of the designs you’ve shared with us here.

Congratulations on the good shows.. What was different about your first show that you feel made it not as successful? I am hopefully doing my first show soon.

Nice looking boards. I like your wood combinations. Good shows and bad shows are the nature of this business.
