    Those peppercorn burls are simply gorgeous. Just up my alley. You have some very very lucky guinea pigs

    yours has been started Laurie, the Peppercorn Burl is a ***** to work with as it has lots of voids and tears out for a pastime when milling, I wasn't able to get the door and the lid from the same block so the grain won't exactly match, but it's still peppercorn burl.

    I havn't started final shaping or routing yet, so If you don't like it I can put it on the back burner for another down the line.
    I have just wetted the top with alcohol to roughly show the grain, so no final sanding yet

    Roughly how many are you making in this run and how many are spoken for SV??

    They are damn sexy. Timber porn at it's finest.

    Would love to have my name on one of these.... You mentioned a short list being started soon. Have an idea yet of final costs, final numbers and when you will take our money finally?

    That was my final question i swear..

    Ok... I'm finally done...

    Every one made so far has been a prototype of some kind, working out the kinks and trying to make something generally repeatable with as little pain as possible, each one will be a little different as none of my machines are CNC and every piece of wood has it's own issues/rewards. Every single component from contacts to battery springs to 510 pos pins to buttons to button plates has been made by hand from raw materials and this is one of the biggest hold ups. As I mentioned in my update post my last attempt to get a small component made is still awaiting completion, but should be happening in the next two weeks or so. Along with that I will be making steps to get the battery leaf springs and top contacts waterject cut from my sheet of beryllium copper, along with a router template for the dovetail doors. So much has been done by hand because I refuse to use the crappy hardware (coil springs,huge button assembles,pcbs etc) available to modders, and once I can get some of this stuff made to my specs I will be able to more clearly estimate lead times and numbers.
    I have a vague list of people who have expressed an interest from when this project was launched, and from that those who have approached me directly through pm are first in line while production is still at a snails pace.
    If I can get a collection of my custom parts and a custom router template and a few other final bits, I can slowly pick up a bit of momentum, but the reason you have no information on costs, final numbers and all that jazz is that I don't need the pressure of several orders, and the inevitable excuses I would have to make for current hold ups etc.
    Assuming the next couple made take their finishes without complaint I will be a lot more confident to mill up a larger batch soon.
    Is that any help? LOL

    What's not to like?

    Looking back over the photos though, the ones with matching grain do look nicer, I'm in no hurry, so i will wait for one with a matchy matchy door........thanks sv!
