After Tom Fidgen’s design in The Unplugged Woodshop. Like her mother, she moves in many directions at once, but wherever she goes, she can at least take her love of art with her.

Made of Teak, with mahogany trim. Finished with beeswax/BLO

Made by hand

-- From such crooked wood as that which man is made of, nothing straight can be fashioned. Immanuel Kant

It will be great when she says, “My dad made this for me!” I think Fidgen would approve.

Doug, this is a classic design made with beautiful wood. It is a thoughtful gift that displays your craftsmanship as you created a gift of love for your daughter. It looks rugged and should stand up to years of an artist’s casual approach to maintenance. I wish both of you a pleasant future and congratulate your daughter on her achievements.
