    They look great, Bob. I see that one already has a bid on it. It will be interesting to see the "auction action".

      All 3 have bids and one has 2 bids. I hope you will have someone on staff contact some folks and get some notoriety about the auctions.

      Hey members like these auctions on facebook, share links to them lets get these bids up there.

        We've got our PR person flexing her muscles and a e-mail blast was supposed to be sent out. With the flooding here in central PA, all the roads between my house and the office are closed, so I'm working from home.

            I'm getting a little push-back from a few places about the fact that this auction will be benefiting Japan relief efforts. I'm going to copy and paste my reply to this push-back here.

            We started the project in March. We received quite a bit of support from the international members of the message boards, and it wouldn't be fair to those members to change the recipients at this point. This is actually the third project like this that Fox Chapel Publishing has done. In 2005, the Woodcarving Illustrated message board auctioned off two friendship canes to benefit relief efforts for Hurricane Katrina. In 2006 the Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts board auctioned off a quilt to benefit Shriner's hospitals and the Woodcarving Illustrated board auctioned off a friendship cane to benefit the Association for the Blind.

              Thanks Mike,
              Luckily, we only got a bit of water in the basement (literally less than 1/2" in one slightly lower corner. If I hadn't broken my mob, the dehumidifier would have removed it by now. Wednesday was a bit scary, though; the stream in my back yard was up over it's banks and about 15-feet up into my yard.

              I guess that weekend I spent waterproofing the basement walls was well spent!

                Way to push back, Bob!

                It should remain a benefit to the Japanese cause, IMO, as that's what the contributors intended it as.....not to mention so many squares, my own included, contain Japanese themes and elements.

                Thanks for getting it up on EBay......I wish the auction well!

                I'll post a link to the auctions on the other message boards, etc I participate with. I'll also post it up at my place of work.

                      What happens with the squares that were not used? Or did they all fit?

                        The quilts look awesome. I hope we get a ton for them. I don't have facebook and I don't know what a twitter is, but I probably do what Mike is doin'. Keep it up, Mike!

                        Bob- I'm glad to hear you came out OK with the storms.

                                Woodgrain is like a straw sucking in the pigment, but I think you did a good job on a complex piece. Lots of patience for this pattern.

                                Thanks Rolf,
                                I actually tried painting the inside of the cuts before removing the pattern and tape. I initially used packing tape because I was out of painters tape. When I sprayed the cuts, apparently the paint bled into the fibers of the wood. But I have to say I have been redeemed by my wife....

                                Nice project, I really like the design. You did use a tough piece of material, I would normally suggest cutting at least 3 layers of 1/8 BB because you will get requests of them. I am curious as to why you got some black bleeding into the grain? Is this mounted on a black backer ?

                                This is my latest project and I'm still up in the air about it. The wood was reclaimed from a table that someone had thrown away. It is 3/4 MDF with veneer on both sides. The project is 11 x 14 and is pretty heavy. The pattern was from "Grandpa" and I believe his real name is Paul. I used...
