I thought this would be something unique for my wife for Mother’s Day.

Basically, it’s a shadow box, about 1 1/2’ deep. I cut an old scrabble board down to size, and glued it to a 1/4’ hardwood board, then glued the letters on in a pattern that made visual sense. The front is plexiglass, so it’s easy to cut.

She liked it :)

-- Have a blessed day!

Don’t you know that proper nouns are not acceptable Scrabble words?! (Just joking with you, of course). Looks like the word Patrick is worth the most points. Great idea—I love playing Scrabble!
