Default First Products Sold From My CNC

The California Avocado Festival was this weekend, and I took 228 pieces to sell ... including 12 made with the new Probotix Nebula.

Of the 12, 5 pieces sold at their first event. I'm impressed!

Sold were half of the trivets. Price was $35/2, or $20 for 1. I sold 2 pairs and a single, for total revenues of $90.

Yes, I'm getting rich.

Also produced, but not sold, were 2 simple racetrack cribbage boards made from Bubinga.

On. My. Way.

I'm thinking grooves/flutes on the bottom side would do it.

Very nice design on the trivets, Henry - clean and simple! I've been wanting to make some of those on our CNC... one of these days, maybe.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Henry, very nice like the rest of your work. What did you use to mark the trivets with your logo?
