I note that I've been largely absent for several months ... lurking, but not active. I've been oh so busy. That's a good thing, from some perspectives....
With our largest holiday boutique ahead of us this weekend, and my making all but finished (yes, that's a pun), I thought it was time to show one of the new things I've created on the CNC this year.
When I started making cutting boards - especially end grain boards - for craft fairs, my # 1 request was for chess boards. I made them to get those voices out of my head ... and my # 1 request became chess pieces. With anticipation that there's just no winning, I began to import pieces from India, where carvers produce beautiful work for an amazing price. So, now, I sell chess sets.
And my # 1 request became Cribbage Boards. It took me a year to figure it all out (Humor! Coming at you!), but I now produce 4-track and 3-track boards. Both are entirely customizable: choose a bottom, choose a top, and you've got your unique cribbage board.
Me? I'm not a player. I'm just the maker.
