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.

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

I work with a laser engraver; she brands all of my work. Even though I could switch to CNC branding, I have no intention of doing so.

Fortunately, she's a bit more advanced in her company, so she's become a great source of referral business as well. She does the laser work; I do the wood work. Win, win.

I wanted to make children's blocks for granddaughter # 1, and she helped me. Her daughter has an art show coming up and needed art frames for her paintings, and I helped her.

Win, win.
