You guys haven't made any new dragon trays in quite a while.  Not that I need another one...

This is true. All of our long cut machine time is going for Valhalla Screens right now. We sold a ton of them. Literally. A ton. Our overall sales for Q4 were insane.

Sounds like you need to invest in another long cut machine...

Congratulations.  It's been amazing to watch you grow as a company - both in terms of size and skill.

We are looking into it. We have 17 CNCs right now. Adding another shift next week which will help a ton. Running some production numbers all week long to find out if we need more. We are hiring about 5 to 7 more apprentices too, which will help a ton. Should be a great year of growth as far as production is concerned.

I have been actually considering this. I probably wouldn't write about Ambrosia Maple though. We don't use it often enough. Any other suggestions?

I think all of @Barb Bliss's suggestions are reasonable - Black Limba, Boco, Paduak, Ziricote.

Spalted Tamarind would also be cool.

@Konas, You have a bug in your email.  Calling ambrosia maple spalted tamarand.  Must have been some MF trying to do too much too quickly.

Also - just a couple of notes on the email.

Email says the sentinel is "spalted tamarind" but site says it's Ambrosia Maple (which is what it looks like).

Also the email refers to the orange sentinel as "not sure what it's made of", but site says it's Curly maple.

 

Damn it @Barb Bliss!

Great minds edit alike.  😛

@Konas, Will came over on Saturday morning and fixed my dining room table/chairs!  Turns out he only lives about 10 minutes from me.  The group at Jaemus' house is a little too big (testosterone filled too) for his girlfriend, but she likes to play games too.  So hopefully the can start coming to my house for games.  Anyhoo, he was impressed with my DMG stash.  I gave him the prototype dice tower (padauk dragon) for fixing my table.  Once we get more social, I'll ask him about the Ziricote scraps again.  I assume you never got hooked up with him???

I came here for the same reason of the email being the wrong listing ;). Love that Ambrosia maple sentinel. Not the right configuration for me at this time. (Maybe some day when I get more fancy dice).

I really like the heartwood on the spalted tamarind, which is probably why I own one :).  If I needed another sheath, the Black Limba or the Rosewood would be very tempting.

I second or third the mention of Ziricote.

That's cool. Happy gaming hopefully. And no, I never got hooked up with him.

And another one.  I guess you do sell a ton of them.

I swear every time I see a sentinel I want it’s always got the function I don’t need.  Sigh....  beautiful pieces as always but unfortunately not meant for this orange fellow.

Others might like Ziricote or Padauk.

I'd vote for Ziricote.  I would love to have more Ziricote tbh :)
