Stacked and epoxied walnut and brass, then turned it. After turning it, I made the stem and leaf out of thin brass. Present for my son’s teacher.

All the other teachers will be jealous – and next school year they will be fighting to teach your son. :)

When I was in high school/college I worked at a summer day camp. One year we had a particularly difficult child – not a bad kid just high spirited with ADHD, at the end of the summer his father gave us gifts in small hand made wooden boxes. I received a small pocket knife – that was over 30 years ago and I still have the box on my dresser holding the pocket knife and some cuff links and tie clips. This teacher will really appreciate this gift.

Merry Christmas.
