    Family Christmas Gifts

    A couple of months ago, I asked Vaughn M. if he would make me a couple of cutting boards as gifts for the holidays. (We're not celebrating for another couple of weeks.) I got them today! I have one for my daughter (which I haven't opened) and one for my step-daughter. Photo attached. It's spectacular. I'm thrilled. And in case you're wondering, I asked him to sign it.

    The signature looks like LM to me. Maybe he subcontracted it out to Larry Merlau!

    vaughn definitely went the extra step, or two or three, for that one.
    Above and beyond.
