I think I read that too.  He could be like that 80s/90's movie Uncle Buck that starred John Candy and make oversized pancakes for them and such.

Yeah that dates me but I don't care.

I'm picturing a comical montage :)

So @Thomas Browne, we got in about 800 board feet of walnut today, the biggest order we have ever gotten. I was perusing some of the boards and found these. Hard to tell with just a rough cut on them but there is something special here. Let me know if you're interested. No pressure at all. Either way, thought it would be cool to post them as roughs and let everyone see how they turn out. Thomas, send me a note if you see something that speaks to you.

Those are really cool. Can't wait to see what they look like finished. Like seeing the before and after.

Seriously - depending on whether I take a board or not - I'd say you want this to definitely be something to show off those pieces - so no big sculpts.  No dragon/rolling tray.

I'd say probably AC, unsculpted screen or deck jacket to show off the wood best.  Maybe XL LG or XL DS for smaller pieces.

Something flat without sculpt or engraving.  Like a sentinel or screen.  Or if you were to make another skirmish box out of really pretty stuff, I would buy it.

I forgot Sentinels in the list - but same idea.

I noticed the duplicates and commented first.  Come on @Thomas Browne.  Dem's the rules.

I thought it was based on the posting order of the original posts/etc... not on the order of the commenting on the duplicates.

So thank you @Konas for the preview and the thought - but as discussed.. not quite what I'm looking for.  Still I can't wait to see what you make out of them.  They're going to be beauties.

Fine.  Come to Minneapolis, and I'll buy you a coke.

Maybe some summer... not at this time of year :D

Good choice, though there's nothing quite like an ice palace or a holidazzle parade.
