This is a project I was asked to do this afternoon- my last of the year. My daughter has a friend who is a real Elvis fan and these new forever stamps came out with Elvis on them. She gave me this full sheet of the new stamps (7”x7” ) and asked if I could make a frame for them with glass on both sides since the back of the sheet is the full picture of Elvis. Well you would not see both sides in a frame hanging on the wall so I mounted it on brass pins on a pedestal. It is made of red oak and finished with natural Danish Oil

Good night and Happy New Year to all you Lumberjocks!!!!!!!!!!!!...................Cheers, Jim
