Finished a long project, I was commissioned (in a way, by a family member, so ya more like asked but not payed, but in this case it’s ok) to make a wooden photo album for my grandfather’s 90th birthday. Found a nice peice of walnut with a knot hole, used a clean portion to carve the Blair family crest with vines around in a very grimoire style. Filled the knot hole with turquoise and used for the back cover. Turned out really nice and hoping it will turn into a Blair family heirloom.
