Thanks for all the kind words on the Channels boys...I loved (?) shaping them because you really did think you were creating something that could hang on a wall. Sanders and glassers did not feel the love.
Firewires go so well for many reason one being exactly what channels ultimately did to a board which, however it happened from the water moving through and across the board, resulted in a UNIQUE feeling that is hard to describe. Firewire tech achieve's this result more from the tech than the contours of the bottom.
Would a FW go even better with 6 deep channels? That is the argument right there and I am not going to engage in that one because all our lovely lady glassers at the factory would change their last names collectively to Bobbit and hunt me down.
