    Getting ready for my first show this coming weekend...

    Actually my first show was supposed to be May 3rd, but Dianne had just come home from the hospital after open heart surgery and I didn't want to leave her home alone all day and taking her with me was out of the question..... even this weekend may be problematic... but getting ready anyway as this is a pretty big show for us.... glued up a block of wood for pepper mill stock and got 10 mills from the block... the block was about 14 x 14 x 3 inches and cut on diagonal...

    The first and last are only about 6" high, the others are all about 9".

    These little crank operated ones are just 4" tall.

    Nice those should be good sellers, that diagonal strip look is sharp.

    My vote is on the one with the bright red stripe running through the top going first! Second would be the little one second from the left with the nice figure in the wood.

    Those should sell well, Chuck. Have a great show, and a great show season.

    May the day be clear, pretty and comfortable. May the crowd be happy, pleasant and rich. May the sales empty your shelves while the money fills your pockets.

    In other words,
    Enjoy,

    Great looking pieces Chuck, don't see any issues selling all of those.
