these babies are over 40 years old. As i started them i got so enthused that i bought four more, some in 18×24in size. These are, to be honest kits, with templates to outlline the design on the veneers, which are then cut out with razor knives and inlayed together. Sort of like paint by number only with blades and wood. Well Ive lived in four houses since the purchase and the four remaining kits have traveled with me still hungering for my hands to turn them into a wall hanging lol. but damn, it is difficult and tedious work. So much so that the two plaques you see are the 33% of the kits that made it to life. and they are a mere 5×7. and took AGES to finish. hopefully one scalding florida summer day, one of the kits will be rescued from oblivion (or ebay) and become a horse or a castle or whatever the box holds, it been so long, im not even sure what. Did i mention the 37 plastic models i got on ebay of which ive assembled 4 so far. HEY they were real BARGAINS.
