The table top is beautiful. I saw the one Kozmo was using last summer. It's a quality piece of furniture. I'd buy it if I wasn't tapped right now.

Thanks for the compliments gents Smile Here's a few pics of the actual table top:

Oh, I should add that it's designed for ease in replacing the fabric. That was one of the main design elements that kept me redesigning these after every batch.

On the underbelly pic, you can see that I've run a groove (channel) for the cloth to lay in. It's then hot glued in place and stretched over the front and stapled. The handrails are face screwed so you can remove them easily, change the fabric once it's worn out, and then screw them back on. The hand rails are numbered on the inside and grooved themselves so it's almost impossible to mis-align them when putting it back together.

It's definitely an outdoor worker's table...but wouldn't do bad at a corporate gig either Smile

Oh, and I think this one is sold, but no $ has traded hands yet, so back up offers are welcome. Remember, buying this table is basically handing Cellini $150!!! (less the shipping costs)

My goal was to send Jim $1000. As of right now the approximate donation total, in cash, to Jim, from me, close to $1700. I see no reason why, at this pace, I won't reach $2000 by the end of next week.

Thank you all for your trust and goodwill toward Jim.

Paypal charges were $7 & shipping was $13.

So Cellini got $130 from the sale of the table. I sent the Paypal to DaveV via the Cellini donation button. (Just want to keep everything transparent)

Thank you Doug (dcjames) and enjoy your table!

Franck, can you give a shipping date?

I have time to wait but it's just to know.

Thanks

After I receive all the donations I need to build all the boxes and ship them out.
I would expect that shipping will start between 1 and 2 weeks. Not after that.

p.s. I just recieved the first shipment of loop balls and cellini purses. the balls look great as usual and the purses look really great. I'm very pleased with these.

Yes Joe, you're right, and all you guys are new heroes of mine. I hope one of the big magazines will do a story on this. This is all good news. I look every day to read about it and I like what I see.

...Your professional woodworking and "tender" loving care in the products you make, make the wait worthwhile. Thanks for all you do...

Ok. Well I can't believe I'm saying this because I didn't think it would happen...
We only have a few boxes left that we could possibly sell. We're still inching toward the $2000 mark and have not gotten there yet but getting closer.

The sales have slowed down obviously but honestly there just aren't too many more we can sell. Soon we will run out of pouches, etc.

I sold 2 today and 3 yesterday. So we're still on target.

Once again, thanks for your trust, support, etc.

I sent an email to Marriane last night asking for complete wiring instruction (the original email only had partial info) so I can send them the first check. As soon as I hear back, off it goes.

I went to the shop and picked up all the pouches for the fundraiser.
I have exactly 4 left and then they're gone.

For those of you that have told your friends, much appreciated.

Yes. Check your PM.
One was just ordered a bit ago. If you order one more that would bring us down to just 2 boxes left. Amazing.

Hey Frank, you really pulled off a great one! That big shining light you see in the east, isn´t the sun,.. or a spot-light. It´s my bald head. I take my hat off to you. It´s really amazing what you´ve got going. This `snowball of giving´. I´d almost say, "It´s makes my hair stand up.",... but,... well, the shining light, remember,...
really well done, it´s a pleasure to see.

It's time to get the rest of the donations which are still trickling in, access the damages, and send some money overseas. Then fill my driveway with boxes and start filling them.

Thanks again for your trust, support, and generosity. I know jim will appreciate it.
I'll be updating my website with info as I get it so you know when to expect your box.

Thank goodness for paypal multi-order shipping is all I can say.
