Doing my woodworking in a garage in a .16 acre tract home plot mean I am unavoidably making noise for my neighbors. I took another board next door, to the college aged girls renting there, as a “thanks for putting up with my noise” offering. One was a new roommate there, from back East, and she has been far more friendly and neighborly than the rest, so I am giving this board to her personally. I believe she was planning on sending it back home as a Mother’s Day gift. Happy Mom’s Day, Tonya’s Mom, I hope you enjoy this!

A little peace offering goes a long way.

I like the wood combination but the spacing order is messing with my eyes. I’m sure she likes it though : )
