The first two pictures are a sign for the front of the house. I traced my 10” TS blade and used a jigsaw. In the second picture, you can see our state wildflower. The last pictures are of a card holder for a client who will be throwing a family reunion. I am framing some prints by his uncle and he will display them and the card holder at the party. I’ll post the frames and the beautiful pictures when I finish them.

Finally, here is the display door at the shop:

Thanks for looking!

Your holder looks great

That is looking great! I think the promotion is going to be worth the time you put into it! I just realized how close you are when i saw the flower and number! -you must be…around Nashville? -meetya near Jackson if you want any walnut, cherry, magnolia, oak, poplar…. hope to go there next week!!-need a break from the city! -and some cool root finds or re-plants and clay after the flooding!

I like your cards and cardholder and your door ain´t bad either
but that front sign ….......sorry to say it becourse I know you have put work into it
but you don´t make stones for grave´s do you ….that was my first thought when I saw it

Take care
Dennis

If you’re down the trail of the weather we’ve had of late, you have no shortage of your choice of wood anyway!! :)
