I see that someone just posted one of these but I’m going to have to give my credit to fellow LJ Dudley.
I thought that a nice spin on this would be to refine it a little and make an ornament for my wife. We’ve been married for a little over a year now and someday we’ll have kids. So. Written on the little inner square is my name, my wifes name, Christmas 09, and there’s 3 more sides for more names to come. Jokingly, but also a just a little serious, I was thinking about adding the dogs name so there’d only be 2 sides left for names. I didn’t, but it crossed my mind. ;-)
I made it following the pictures Dudley showed me in his project post, But I used oak and walnut.
I gave it some color with a soak in danish oil. Let it dry and put on 1 coat of wipe on poly.
For the ribbon I drilled a 1/8inch hole straight into one corner but not all the way through. I squirted some Gel super glue in the hole, twisted the two ends of the ribbon together and stuck them in the hole.
Hope you guys like it.
