Various boards, etc. I made for my first craft fair back in June. These are the ones that unfortunately didn’t sell, but at least I got to take their pics. If you didn’t notice, I was on a breadboard kick at the time. I like it for the cutting boards (even if not 100% necessary), but the pizza peel was a bit overkill. Oh well, don’t know ‘til you try. Now I have to store all this stuff. All comments/critiques/questions are welcomed.

I think the boards are really nice. I hope you sold a lot of other ones :)

If the pizza peel was designed to be used as one, it is way overbuilt! The leading edge needs to be very thin. If it was designed as a CB, probably not too practical, even if it looks good.

I think you can salvage some of those boards by cutting the long handles off of them. You might even be able to get a couple of smaller boards out of the pizza peel , if it’s not tapered yet : ) I think the rest will sell at your next show : )

Nice work. I am wondering what sold if these are still around?? I like the style of the boards. The pizza peel is a bit much though!! Have you posted pictures of the jewelry box? It looks very good.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Thanks everyone. It was a good show, and considering the small crowd things did sell fairly well. The pizza peel is tapered to a point for scooping, it’s just a bad angle on the pic. I don’t think I’ll be cutting down any of the boards; I’ll just save them for presents or the next show. Maybe I can get a fraternity or cricket team interested in the long-handled board…

Hey, Dan – your work is really great. Just because sales were slow at one small show… be proud of making unique tools/gifts/art. I know I don’t want to buy the same things I see everywhere else. Keep being creative, because your craftmanship looks awesome.
