    probably the last items out of the shop before winter shutdown

    these may be the last items out of the shop before the winter shutdown. 3 more endgrain cutting boards of hickory, jatoba, and walnut. plus, three more of the jerusalem cross advent candle holders. i still have to sand, round over the edges, and oil the boards, and just waiting on the right sized brass grommets to press fit in the holes of the candle holders.

    also, i did a quick inventory of what got made this year. 18 cutting boards (1 for the fair, 3 bulging, 4 taper, 8 end grain, 2 chevron, and 1 for my sister), 3 of the new type of wine bottle holders, the insert for my nephew, and the bookcase insert for the landlord's place up north.

    Nice boards Dan. You got quiet a bit done this year. How are sales going on your site? Have you really reached the stage where you have to pack in working due to weather already. ? Was cold here but i managed to be outside if i dressed for it and wore a toque.
    cheers

    I really like your pattern on the cutting boards. The use of the square with the 2 squares long is very effective. It gives a bit of the checkerboard effect without the visual stress of the checkerboard. It is amazing how much softer that pattern is to the human eye and brain (says the old goat whose brains have already leaked out).

    ***** That is the 5 stars you earned.

    Enjoy,
