    Are these to be sold to blockheads or just people with artistic appreciation?

    Enjoy,

    I think I can see a spiritual figure in one of the blocks...might be worth every penny.

    I would make some of the blocks longer, and arrange them so the tall blocks made a big "S".

    I have a cheeseboard I made with a face of St. Barnabas in it. I offered it to my priest as a miracle, but he turned it down. No imagination!

    And that "S" stands for SUCKER, right?

    Sorry, but all I can think of is --- Why Not?

    I KNOW - there are lots of people in Fairfield County Conn. that WOULD BUY that stuff. REALLY - they WOULD.

    I go into some of those homes and that stuff really looks AWESOME hanging on the wall.

    So it does not need to be coconut wood - ANY end grain wood would look cool. Trick is - not all 1" thick. The blocks would need to be varied in thickness by - say - 1/4 inch.

    I would hedge by bet and put the 24x24 piece at - errr - $250.

    I might go so far as to make a nice mitered bull nose black border at 1-1/2 thick.

    My BET - at a arts festival - in Fairfield County Conn - I could sell at least 4.

    I love the Idea - thank you for posting!!!!

    Sorry - I don't see things like other people do. My bad.
