I haven’t posted in a while due to constant pain from my disability. I was determined to make some gifts for the family and friends though and spent about a week in the shop this month making these. The happy smiles on the faces of my loved ones and the satisfaction of seeing these projects turn out so well more than made up for the week of misery and pain I felt.
The 1st pic is a sign for my good friend and neighbor Bob. #2 is a shot glass display for my son, Bill (He doesn’t drink but collects the glasses, thank goodness!) #3 is a vase I made for my daughter Heidi. I got the pattern from the scroll-saw workshop (http://scrollsawworkshop.blogspot.com). #4 is a keepsake box for my daughter Kristin. The pattern also came from the scroll-saw workshop (http://scrollsawworkshop.blogspot.com).
Lastly, my wife collects Santa figurines. I hand carved this one for her, she was ecstatic! It is her first handmade figurine. The rest were all mass produced plastic or ceramic she collected over the years.
Lastly I made a #1 DAD shop pencil holder for my son-in-law. He is such a wonderful father to my autistic grandson. I also got the pattern from the scroll-saw workshop (http://scrollsawworkshop.blogspot.com)
