So this was my first woodworking project when I was in 6th grade so it’s about 25 years old. I made it for my grandmother who kept it on her wall every day until about 4-6 years ago when she was moved into a nursing home. I’ve been meaning to post this project for some time just for fun. Well today I’m posting it as I’m getting ready to go to Colorado to bury my Grandmother. It’s not the post impressive woodworking accomplishment but she thought it was that made me so proud. Thank you for reading my story.

My condolences on your grief. I made a foot stool for my Dad when I was 14 and upholstered it when he was out of town and kept it upstairs in my room and was going to surprise him in the morning after he got back but it was not to be as he passed away during the night after he got back. I was devastated that he never got to see and use my surprise for him. Again, my condolences!

It was made with great love, hung and kept with great love—the most impressive accomplishment. I’m sure the memories will last forever. I’m sorry for your loss.
