I finally finished an order that drove me crazy! I had an order for a trophy case but every design I came up with was too large for what was wanted. Finally we agreed on a simple shelf. As a second thought I added shaker pegs to hang things from. Turned out to be a great idea as her daughter had medals that needed added to the display. Stained with red oak and three coats of gloss polyurethane.
Now for an added touch she ordered some signs for their rooms. The names and butterfly’s are all carved in with a dremel router. Go slow but steady. Stained with red oak and the butterfly’s are colored with sharpie marker. Three coats of gloss polyurethane.
Also a repeat order. She was so happy with the first book case that she ordered another one. Really kept me busy. In fact, she has already ordered two more projects! I take a lot of pride that someone would be so happy with my work that they would want more.
