It seems I have created a monster by trying to justify the noise of a fictitious business model
upsetting another model couple............
I guess I'll have to sleep on it.

Maybe they can be custom hand carved toothpicks from various exotic woods. Then the only sounds would be lots of busy hands whittling away :)

Bob, it looks like you've picked another winner!
Hey didn't the F.W. Terrell Mfg.Co. invent the silent running toothpick turning device?

Just remember, Bill... you can run, but you can't hide!

HEY !! There's some really good suggestions there. Did you ever see one of those drums in
which they tumble various candies to coat them with some outer candy shell? There is a similar
machine used in toothpick making, it is heated and it hardens the wood. The one at Terrell's
makes a soothing rain-like sound that puts you to sleep in seconds.

So all they have to do is truck the picks in from the mill and tumble-dry low, with similar colors and a warm iron if necessary!

Make it so!

Don't be silly Pete, I HAVE to make some of the machinery, that's the fun of it

The brickwork was made by cutting small pieces from the brick sheet and overlaying
them to form the patterns. The back of course is rather plain.

If I get a chance I'll see what a bit of paint will do tomorrow.

Looking good to me, Bob.

But what do I know, I never knew making toothpicks could be so noisy.
