I made this one for my wife’s mother because as we all know if the wife’s mother isn’t happy then the wife isn’t happy and if the wife isn’t happy then I sleep in the shop on a cot.

-- Everyone calls me Ed or Eddie , mom still calls me Edward if she is mad at me.

Thank you all for the kind words , I tried to keep the lines clean and classy on this one as the mother in law is kind of hard to please even though she likes me, so I didn’t want a busy board for her just something like what you see here .thanks for all the critiques it is how I learn
