142Loaded up 44 boards in the van this afternoon so we can go to the other shop I work with to have them sanded on his wide belt sander. :drool: I wish I could afford one myself but renting time is much less expensive.

Love the extra smilies Dave!:ggodjob:

Looks great! That's a ton of boards. Do any of these happen to be from the sale? I don't know how backed up you are at the moment, but I that would be super fast...

Looks like you killed a few maple trees again, David :)

StephanFowler - Yours is in there!

chuck239 - Several are sold and finally I will have some back stock available for sale.

apicus9 - Just call me the tree slayer. LOL!

Of the 44, most are maple, a few cherry and walnut and for those with very sharp eyes, there are three mahogany boards. A lady called and just had to have a mahogany board so I was able to purchase some from my supplier. I was able to make the boards but there were so many checks and cracks I ended up throwing away about a third of what I bought. If the available stock gets better I will have more available for sale.

If you get any busier you're going to need a bigger van. :cool2:

The ones on the right look familiar! So cool to get a glimpse at the process. Thanks for posting!

Our kitchen should be done before the ECG. Hopefully my wife will see a board there she likes, as we'll have plenty of counter space to add another one.

Is there a small end-grain mahogany hiding in there? :)

David, you will be saving some for the ECG, right?
