I made this for my father in law for Christmas this year; it was a fun project and he seemed to really like the fact that everyone including my wife and 3 kids all chipped in to do some sanding or cutting to make it for him. I still have a lot to learn about finishing but overall it came out nice and he loved it. We recessed a brass inlay that said “From your family with love” in Italian on the back and bought him a matching Rosary… Since he’s full blooded Italian and very religious we all felt this would be a perfect gift for him.

Excellent work and even better sentiment from the entire family. This will be cherished for the rest of his life. Good work, keep it up.
