Here it is, another Valentines Day, the only difference this year is I’m not scavenging the shelves in search of flowers and chocolates. Instead, I gave myself a weeks notice to build something. What am I gonna build, I didn’t think that thru very well, so I dug out some antique hooks from the hardware bucket, a mirror from the storage closet and some wood from the scrap bin and voila’... a framed picture of my lovely wife… or the dog, whichever steps in front…..

That’s really nice Marty. What happens if you step in front of it?

Marty, nice work. Making an arch at the top can be a chore. That must be some hardware bucket if you pulled that set of hangers out of it. They look great. I take it that the scraps were white oak. Nice to see you planned ahead for Valentine’s Day. Good to see your poste projects.

The piece is very nice but very much like with the quote.
Reminds me of most of my days.
