First project posting!
My dad passed away a few years ago, and most times when we visit mom I make something for her in dad’s old workshop. I usually just use what’s there as far as wood and materials go. Sometimes mom has a request, and sometimes the muse just takes me!
We are Norwegians from Minnesota, and the word “Uffda” carries a special place for us. Wikipedia does a pretty good job of describing it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uffda
This was from a beat-up cedar plank, with spray-bomb black and clear finishes. It made my day to bring the sign into the house and hear mom laugh when she saw it over the door! Completed this summer.
