Joe, John's brother, was John's partner in crime. For his visit over New Year's, Joe helped John saw, measure, and test out markers and erasing techniques for optimum performance. Just to appease me, they put a nice trim around the bottom of the board. Had it not been for Joe the project might not have ever gotten off the ground. Thanks Joe!
P.S. The board worked. John was #1 on his test on Friday.
