I can be quite absent minded.. and often leave my car lights on. My neighbor here at the studio has saved me many times by calling me when they were on.. and giving me a jump the times my battery was dead. After the tragic death of his little nephew only a few months before a new nephew (the child’s brother) was born. After seeing my first Adirondack Chair.. he asked if I could make him a simple chair with the new baby’s initials and birth date… well I poured myself into making this piece for him. Like a broken record… I can’t do simple.

Also this is what my brand new 10” opening bandsaw can do. :)

I’m sure your gift won’t ease the pain, but may it help them to begin to move onward.
Excellent work.

Wow wow wow, I want to say you did a awsome job on that rocker. You should make another one just like that but use some hard wood like, maple,walnut or cherry, However it is fantastic.
