For Christmas my wife gave me a handsaw. She said that she wanted to get it painted with something woodworking.
So then she gave it to my daughter whe finished the saw and then gave it to me on my birthday.
I then took the saw and made a mounting plate to mount the saw.
So given all of that processing, it is finally finished.
The backer board is a piece of Maple Burl that I got about 4-5 years ago. I wrote about it in one of my wood gloates You can see in the last two pictures how the color streaks have moved around because of the burl in the tree. The sap path was not very straight.
The saw has been painted with sections for each of the family members. The left roller coaster is Karrie and her family. There is room for one more car but she said no way.
The merry-go-round has my oldest daughter Missy She is professing that no more will be allowed to get on that ride.
The Ferris wheel is my daughter Rebecca and her clan. It would take a lot of work to add another car to that ride.
The final section is my son Martin He’s not been very active on LumberJocks but I figure some day when a place is available for a shop, he might get started. Marty has been a Chef in New Jersey, Philadelphia and New York. His wife Elizabeth is a hand Surgeon so work safely so you never have to visit her.
I want to thank the family for all that they have done to make my life so enjoyable. And thanks for the Christmas/birthday present.
God bless you all.
