    I only see 19 so I assume Mrs. Steve has already wrapped a gift for someone!
    I also am interested in the clamping procedure(s) for that volume to be completed near the same time.
    I envision something like a sheet of plywood top and bottom and boards on four sides then cutting the boards apart.

    I sure hope you have a drum sander or something similar. Lp That's a ton of work, but the boards look great.

    Very nice Steve, even for a guy with a bad thumb,

    Yep 20 total in pic. 7 clamps total, during each glue up. I would do 6 per day. Nothing like a 18" board with a 60" clamp on it. Guys got to do, what ever it takes. Think i will get a little earlier start next year.

    Just for $ sake. I have right at $10 worth of lumber in each. $5 of maple and $5 of cherry. When I picked up the lumber the guy asked "how many board feet" I said $100 bucks worth of both. Should have seen his face. Never had anybody buy lumber by the dollar amount.

    They look good Steve , someone will like getting these . In the past I brought mine just by the board not the board foot . I going to have to start looking for some WALNUT 4X4's OR 6X6's where I can start milling it down to Ornament material . Merry Christmas buddy ..........
