I Hate Custom Orders

Ah but, here one is. Don't get me wrong, they do help
pay the bills. As in this case though, I could only
make one. When I make a box of this type I usually
make 10 or 12. This way I'm not spending half my
time setting up a machine to do a task for one box.
My stuff is priced in such a way that one box at a
time is a loser.

Here are a couple of pictures of a custom recipe box.
I usually make them for 3" x 5" cards. This was requested
to fit 4" x 6" cards. I forgot to take pictures until I had it
all glued up as pictured here. I'll do better next time.

The joint pictured here, in the corners, is a box joint.

Second Show In Tahoe City, California

Oh well, they all can't be great. Schools were back in session this last week. Some were saying that's why the attendance and sales were down the weekend of August 28th to August 30th. I say it's the economy stupid, and the weekend before was a fluke.

This next weekend (Labor Day) we're home in downtown Truckee. This will be the first of, hopefully, many to come in the future.
