This is a special project I made for my friend from college.
Just two months ago she lost her husband to stomach cancer. He was 35.
I felt bad that I was unable to make it down for his funeral. So I suggested she bring her 2 1/2 year old up at some point to get away.
I wanted to make her something that would hopefully put a smile on her face.
She visited this past weekend and it indeed did put a smile on her face.
It’s cherry with ash plywood and a bit of maple (the lion paws). I hand cut the dovetails. I still struggle with freehand inlays. I end up having to fill more areas in than I want. I had to do a little filling in on some of the dovetails as well.
And one more thing . . . Go Lions!
