My son lights up my life, so I decided to gift him in kind.

The wood is Buckeye Burl, which I recently won in a Craft Supplies USA Facebook contest. The kit was purchased, under my sons nose (Dad! Dad! Can I have a flashlight?”), during a pre-Christmas visit to Penn State Industries. Finished with BLO and CA.
