Christmas gifts that we did for our parents. It was our son’s Alex and Charlie’s (8mo old) first Christmas.

Curly Maple with heat transfer of the ink. (I used this technique of transferring the ink to wood…it is really easy.)

My wife found the phrases and said “make something!” So I did. I don’t have a bunch of shop time these days with the boys so I kept it simple and quick.

Have a good week!
