« Part 2: What oil? Part 3 of Boards. series Part 4: 10... sanded ready for oiling... »

I received an order for 10 cheeseboards… this is only an initial order to see how everything goes…

The boards will be used as part of a marketing strategy by some friends who sell continental sausage and cheese products.. they wish to use the boards to display some of their wares and maybe package the product with a board for sale…

Here is some pics of the glue up… note the items are not finished…

This last one is not one of the 10… just a blow in… had some purple heart leaft over so I make a quick weave.

I will post finished boards soon…

Nice variety. You have built up a repetoire of designs that you can crank out on demand.

You are an amazing craftsman. You must have elves working for you or you are working all the time. I hope you take time to down a pint or two.

Larry, glad to hear about the potential production work. You’ve got some really great variety here between this initial run. Keep us posted. Hopefully this order multiplies exponentially going forward.

Great work Larry. You might have to buy some more clamps at that order rate.
