OK I guess is is time to take the plunge and post some of my stuff up here on LJ—haven’t really felt worthy before now—but as my skill improves I am starting to make stuff I feel like showing off :)

lacking what this design is “supposed” to be called I have dubbed it the “Smart Zebra” because its stripy and its graduated (don’t worry—my kids roll their eyes at me too)

this one is maple and walnut…beeswax and mineral oil finish…

This is definitely worthy! Don’t you love making your own boards? So satisfying….

Its not really going yet…starting to make the local marketing contacts now, setting up the site, getting ready to list products on Etsy. Discovered we are too late to get into any of the good local craft fairs for this summer (but have the cutoffs marked on our calendar for next year). But we are hopeful that we can start to get some sales over the summer and should be able to make some of the Fall shows…
