Hi Everyone!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything…but I’m really excited about this new music box I did. Of course the tune plays “Born Free”. The music box is made from Poplar and is lined with felt.

The reason I haven’t posted in a while is because I have been working on something really special. Something that I believe will help many people. Check out what is so special….click on “Table Top Easel” below in my signature.

I love this group…I love the way everybody pitches in and shares….Blessings to you all. Hugs…Danette

Hi Everyone!
Just want to thank you all regarding your kind comments on my Lion music box. I love doing wildlife. My husband builds the boxes for me and I do the woodburning…we make a good team.

The easel will hold a 20” x 20” piece…I haven’t tried a bigger piece than that. I have a lot of disabled friends and this really helps them so they don’t have to bend forward to burn. I have a bad back myself so it helps me, too. Have a great week! Hugs…Danette

Your talent is inspiring. I would love to try my hand at pyrography right after I learn to do intarsia, marquetry,carving,turning,drawing, well you get the idea.

Thanks for sharing.
