Here we are again. My stuff you have seen before. However, my mother (83) is where I got the woodworking bug from.

She still works on stuff 6-10 hours a day. For her 80th birthday we bought her a new belt sander.besides wood burning and painting, she makes most of her own frames.

Thanks for looking

Those projects look great! Awesome birthday gift for her.

I would buy my grandfather something like that but not sure where he would put it. He turned 91 this year and spends hours everyday working on building dollhouses.
