    Yes, that would be the next phase for the boards. Get the lazer engraving done, and then onto the bookbinder.

    Good timing on the bump. I was about to post a production update today.

    The board production is taking longer than expected. Jim underestimated the time needed to complete this many boards. He's spending a significant amount of time on each and getting them just right. Of course there's two per book so there is a lot to make. There are so many steps and so much manual labor than goes into making these wood boards and perfecting them.

    Also some don't end up meeting quality requirements, so he has to make more than what was initially planned. This sort of stuff you don't know until you actually get deep into production.

    He's looking to hire some help to move things along. We also have to wait for the last lot of cut wood to dry as it has to air dry. In the middle of it all, he is going to be away for three weeks teaching and giving classes. I am safely estimating another 3 months for completion.

    Anyway.... thanks for your patience. I can tell you, it will be well worth the wait. The level of craftsmanship that is going into these books is astounding.

    To leverage this time now waiting for the boards, the bookbinder is starting to prepare the page blocks and I am getting the laser engraving done on the boards that I do have on hand. So this will save us some time when all the boards are ready.

    Everything else is in place. Signed prints, original illustrations, etc.

    HOW IS THAT "FIRESTARTER" COMING ALONG?

    LOOKS LIKE WE WILL ALL HAVE TO RELAX A WHILE LONGER ON OUR QUEST FOR THE "FIRESTARTER"

    Good wood is worth the wait.

    As a woodworker, these boards are a very exciting part for me.

    You walked right into that one Brian. ;-)

    Thanks for your understanding everyone!

    Bruce, maybe I should tell Jim to stop using a stick and kindling to scorch the boards. Might save some time.

    Thanks for the update Paul. I love hearing about the inner workings and have no problem waiting. It's like Christmas all year 'round when you're a book collector

    Thanks Lori. The bookbinder got the books today, so he can start preparing the page blocks. This will give us a jump on that while we're waiting for the rest of the boards.
