To clarify, this is a $50 refundable deposit to be on a waitlist. You get an email when it’s your turn explaining the next steps and how to move forward with an actual order. If you place the order the $50 goes to it. If not, it’s refunded.
To answer the question about wait time, this is why he has a waitlist as opposed to taking orders and making people wait for a year+.
Hopefully he can get caught up and open it again. Being a one man shop has its perks (quality control, as referenced in the other thread), but there’s also tremendous pressure from customers, supply chain, logistics, etc. He’s working 6 days a week to keep up. I’d love to be able to get boards glasses from him, or get a board from him… or just be able to hang out. I miss my friend!
