If you are a Lumberjock, you know Steve of Woodworking for Mere Mortals. He is one of my favorites and I always look forward to his videos. He is not only funny and entertaining, he is informative. I made this from 1/2 inch plywood with a 1/8 inch backing. It is about 11 X 14 inches. I will be sending it to him vial mail next week.

Mighty fine work Mike!

This most certainly looks like Steve – I can even recognize the messy shelves behind him!

I can’t wait for his video showing off your gift – nice job!

I liked that avatar. I believe “not ottoman” was the inspiration for that pose.
