When my 2 girls were small I had a small amount of chestnut that was left over from restoring my house but now the girls are all grown. I descovered that they still had the boxes I made them 25 years ago so I decided to make one for my grand daughter who is about the same age they were when I made them theres only I had to use walnut and maple this time. The handle is a little kitty cat I cut using my scroll saw. Thanks for looking.
