Nice looking boards. That is a good way to get rid of scrap materials.

Very nice. At first, I thought I was going to have to have my eyes checked again and so soon. My complements on the nice cutting boards!
David, you can't please everybody. Send the customer a pocket dictionary with the word "random" marked. Or you could tell the customer to turn it 90 degrees. I heard of an artist who sent a painting to a gallery. When he visited the gallery, they had hung his paint upside down!

When we set up our Etsy shop I didn't really know if we'd sell anything but I was hopeful. Early on we got an order for a random pattern cutting board from a woman in CA. It always seems odd to me to refer to 'random' as a pattern... oh, well.

I put it all together and shipped it. When she left her review she gave us 4 stars and said it would have been 5 stars but she "didn't like the pattern." Hello! It's a RANDOM pattern board - what's not to like?! It looked almost identical to the photo I used for the listing and the listing description clearly states that every board will be different and the photo is representative of what you'll receive. I digress, sorry!

David
That is what keeps me away from putting out any real kind of effort to "sell" anything. There are some people, alot of people in fact that just don't get it.
I've been looking into consignment work... let someone else deal with em... I know that with a 1 on 1, my mouth would get me into ALOT of trouble

Thank ya John... your eyes are fine. Just not everyone's cuppa tea.
The wife has a pretty good following on facebook. Whenever she posts cutting boards, the traditional pattern boards are more popular, but the chaotic boards do have a following....

It reminds me of the art gallery where a couple were staring at a painting of three naked coal miners on a form, the centre one had a white penis. The gallery director noticed the puzzled look on the couple's faces and proceeded to give a complex explanation of the meaning of the painting. When he left a rough looking man went up to the couple and told them to forget what they had been told, he was the artist and when he painted it the centre man had been home for lunch!
