No rest for the weary, not even Christmas Eve and Christmas day. After opening presents we went to the shop and spent the day on this project. We got this order way back in the summer and were told they would be back at Christmas to pick it up. We procrastinated all summer and finally got around to it last week. It is made from sassafras and smells wonderful. Each piece is a solid 2” thick board, legs are 3 inches thick. It is It is 54 inches wide and is not light. You should have seen the log he sawed it from! I think it was about 3 ft. across at the stump. They wanted it so it can be hauled back home broke down and they will put it back together when they get it home. I am not sure what the “Blood Babies” means but I know they were triplets and I think 2 died at birth. We didn’t think that black paint in the letters would look right here so we decided to burn them and the angels with a woodburning pen. That took much longer and was harder but I am still convinced it looks better that way. I used a v-groove bit for the letters and a flat bottom 1/4 inch but for the angels. It is all done with the hand router, just following the pencil lines from my pattern.
