My good friend and generous PBS Associate member Mike Vines made me this "election present". I figure such a good deed deserves to be paid forward and want to put it up for auction for our youth hunt.

Image

This hand made Maple cutting board engraved with the PBS logo is 1" thick and is 24" wide by just under 16" tall.

It is finished with food grade mineral oil and will need a coat every now and then with the same to properly maintain it.

All proceeds will go to this year's Youth hunt for pronghorn antelope in Wyoming in August.

I will cover shipping to the high bidder.

Bidding will end at 11pm Eastern time on Saturday February 23, 2013. I should be home from the Daddy Daughter Dance by then and give me a chance to make the last bid if necessary!

Thank you Mike, you are quite a craftsman!


I will start the bidding at $50

That would make a better V-day gift for my wife than the gas station rose I usually get.

$76

I thank you for the kind words Steve, and so that everyone knows. I sent the board home with Steve as my way of saying thanks for putting up with me for as long as he has and as my way of congratulating him on his election win. I asked Steve to do as he wished with the board. I couldn't of thought of a better thing to do with it.

When Mike asked me if I could find a file of the PBS logo, I got curious and weasled out of him what he was up to. I asked him to take a couple pictures of the progress so people coule see the work involved.

There are no pictures of the pieces of lumber being cut and glued together and shaped.

Here is a shot of the logo carved in:

And the epoxy added:

Ready for the mineral oil:

Not a 5 minute project!

Hah! that knife does NOT go with it. I will have to think of something if this gets up towards a certain threshold.

Right now Kevin will have to cut up his moose steaks with his own knife on that one of a kind piece of art ;)

I spent all of my money on a buffalo hunt and you have already taken me out of the game with your bids.
But what I can do is add a package of buffalo to the auction in case the winner gets tired of eating moose steaks. :mrgreen:
I will make it a large roast which can then be cut into steaks the thickness of your choice if so desired. And if you can pick them up at the PBS Odd Year Wisconsin gathering I will prepare them for your dining pleasure!

I LOVE these threads from a DIFFERENT perspective and that is it helps identify who to hit up for donations for the next Gathering!

Fair Warning MV! :o

I'll just say it all started with an old screwdriver. When it comes to woodwork, I'm willing to try anything. Please send your ideas and thoughts my way as to what you might want made and donated. All I ask is that I'm given enough time to complete whatever it may be your wanting. I don't like to rush anything.
