Haut Bump

This Haut "Bump" is absolutely gorgeous. The color is a lot deeper transparent Burgundy. The photos don't show the color well. It's on the showroom floor at the Haut shop. It is really well worth a visit to see it.
And it's for sale!

Primo Fun

We had a really fun time with Brad Gerlach and friends from Primo beer. They have been out touring glass shops and ding shops promoting their beer. I think they had a pretty good time tripping out on the history of the shop displayed through old pictures and random graffiti. Real cool guys, and they even came with beer!
P.S. No boards were worked on after the Primo's!

Nickelodeon asked TBF to make 7 custom boards for the Sundance Film Festival this year.They teamed up with Marc Andreini and the Santa Cruz Board Builders Guild to produce two 9'-6" spoons, one 9'-2" spoon and four 8'-0" vaqueros. Each board was then signed by celebrities, to be auctioned off for charity to support the National Wildlife Federation and the Natural Resources Defense Council, (NRDC). Artwork by Serena Mitnik-Miller and Mason St. Peter.

Owl Log

I wish I had more pictures of this board. It came out really cool!
Marc was on his way down south to deliver this board to an anxious Nigel S. Peppercock, when I cornered him for this photo.
