I’m sorry you couldn’t finish on time. I’m sure it would have been a strong contender. I’ll be waiting to see the finished product.

Super neat. it might be even better since it’s laminated. It might last longer and be stronger. Good job

Nice work. And Dominos too…how great is that! Another Festoolian on that slippery slope…

Mot, you better check on your Domino. It probably has more stamps on its passport than most people do.
