Good job, Mark, and great video!

You understand, of course, that your skittles board can not really be considered a TRAVEL skittles board unless it actually travels.  With that in mind, I hope to see you and your travel skittle board in Miamisburg in August....  ;)

I agree with a number of things.

Yes...the board is terrific.
Yes...the video is great
Yes...your workshop is well equipped
Yes...an off-centered tip would be exciting
Yes...the game should travel
And yes...you and the game should travel to Miamisburg to celebrate Christmas in August!!!

Yes! I sure hope I can make it! I may have a gig conflict, and I have to drive across the country the next day, but I'll do my best to get to Miamisburg!

I will have to make something like this when I have some time. Will have to use 3D printed pins and top though ;D
Thanks for taking the time to make the video.

Jim, thanks so much for the link to the thread about the tip shape for Cyril's top tables. I hadn't seen it and there's some great information there!

Nice work.
Besides, something strange. Two of my favorites skill toys. Top and Clubs (those little ones seem juggling clubs, in miniature, of course)
