As the title states, this was my first project in a quite a few years. I had shortly before taken over the ownership of most of my woodworking tools from a very good friend who was slowly dying from brain cancer. I’d worked with Don on a couple of his projects, but this one was entirely mine. I started with a Maple scrap from his scrap bin, used his old band saw for the cutout edges, used one of his old routers on the edges, and used some of his old stain for finishing. Heck, I think the shaping on the edges was from an idea we had worked out for a clock he wanted to do, just bit more drawn out for this project. It now hangs proudly by the entrance I use as my home’s main entrance. Not a day passes that I don’t use it, see it, and think fondly of Don. He’d be proud of it, and of how far my skills have matured. That’s all that matters to me.
