This is a project that I made for my grandfather. He was with my wife and I in July when we visited Roberts Studio and requested me to make this puppy for him. He is 95 and should be an inspiration to all of us. For his 90th birthday he took flying lessons, up until last year lived by himself, very active in the Masons, always online, and still taking classes to learn new things. He is now living with my brother to make his life less stressful. I have made him many things over the years and he wanted something small he could hang in his room. It was the least I could do to make him happy. He has had some medical issues in the last month and I can only hope this will cheer him up. Usually I can’t make a project without making some of my own changes (hopefully to improve it but not always lol), on this one I made it as close as I could to what he asked for. Hope he likes this and it shows in some little way how much I love him. It was made from walnut, aspen, mohogany, teak, ebony, curly maple, cherry, and poplar.
