    I have to "gloat"

    When I first worked my courage to post pictures I mentioned that I was not the artistic woodworker that I did mostly crafts. This week I attended a local craft show and actually SOLD OUT!!! 11 band saw boxes. The two shown here went for 45.00 each.

    15 2x4 deer @ 18.00 each. Made from economy studs. 3 (9 total) each candy dishes @ 15.00 each. Small deer 25 @ 5.00 each. Small pull apart 30 @ 3.50.

    I make these things all year and save for the x-mas show - I've never done this good. All the profit goes to the Adopt a Family for Xmas. I kow I'm probably pushing the envelope with post, just can't control my self. I've got a few more pictures I want to post -sorry

    Sold out? That's definitely a gloatworthy occasion. Great stuff, and it's great that you're donating the proceeds to a worthy cause. I agree with Larry, too...the painting jobs really make the Santa and Snowman come to life.

    And if you keep showing pictures of beautiful work like that bandsaw box, you're gonna have to stop with the whole "I'm not an artist" thing.
