This is the karate belt display that I made for the karate school my kids attend. I had actually written a blog it so I won’t go into much detail here, I just wanted in my project folder. It made of walnut, hickory and maple. Metaphorically speaking, I made it to equate the growth and development of your youth to that of young sapling tree. Both are flexible or impressionable and easy to mold when young but very difficult in maturity.

My daughter is starting her black belt candidate training today and it runs for 8 weeks then the final test happens where she will hopefully obtain her goal. Thanks for looking and if you want to learn more about check out the blog I wrote about it.
