Topic tags/keywords: camphor laurel progress bbq board

Well, today another board got up loaded to the Lazy Larrys Woodworks site... and I made a round cheese board with frangipanis.. which was an order… to be sold with a cheese knife.. not shown…

Not inset yet… leaving that till I have the others done…

Here are a few more BBQ Boards… again unfinished..

From the left .. Mikes…cupcakes…Holy Grail Ale…Peroni…and coloured Coopers.

This time from the right…Maple leafs… Budweiser…M & Ms …..Becks…

And another small addition to the line… BBQ Baguette Boards…

James Boag….Sierra Nevada…. Hahn Super Dry….Tooheys and Bud…

And I know I mentioned a Zodiac Lazy Larry… this is the dry fit.. and no the caps are not in order…

I hope to have them all finished tomorrow…

Looking good

If you run out, slices of branches could look good.

By the time you get all those bottles emptied, I’m surprised you can still see, much less do wood work!

I am envious of your many talents.

Hi Larry;

Are these selling for you, or are you just stocking up in case?

You could end up with no room in the shop to do anything.

well lee if they dont sell and he has to stock them up, he can always take the time to add to his cap collection…and not need help from across the pond…which im sure would be undertaking a large order…how many caps does it take to make lazy larry a happy man…....maybe only three at a time…but that would take some time…....does milk come in a bottle over there larry…it might be better for ya…..grizz

Lee… yes they are selling… and I have yet to do any serious marketing… just showing a few friends… I launched at the Maleny Wood Show and sold a heap… no mean feat at the WOOD SHOW…where the majority of buyers were buying timber and most enquiries were about how to make them but they did sell… so I am making inventory I do not want to be caught short..
BTW half of todays effort were pre ordered…

You must have put a dent in your bottle cap supply by now! Keep up the good work.

Those boards look great Larry!

It’s hard to chose between all of them, they all have something unique.
