I’m sure that when they hit the ceiling in your kitchen. You might have to stop.

But otherwise keep it up.

Some of patterns appear wavy. Is that intentional or a camera phenomenon?

I can help.
step 1. put away all the tools
step 2. park the car in the garage, ie..your shop

I saw a pic of your shop, those of us with a garage that houses the wifes car also have to do setup and tear down including vacuuming. Follow these steps and you too can have new that dont get used enough.

Those boards look great, I’m working on one also. :)

Bob, AWESOME job on the zig zag board. It looks incredible. The rounded corners really complete the look. I’m proud of you.

The wavy lines are “supposed to be there”, yea, thats the ticket! Actually, I was moving too fast and did not notice my thin boards were out of square by a degree or 2. The final effect makes it more interesting.
