It’s always a help to the the cause when your wife’s hobbies can be incorporated into your own.

My wife built a stained-glass lamp for her parents for Christmas. The top of each stained glass panel was a slightly different size. So the wife had me build a base and create a wooden top to hide the inconsistent heights.

Not the hugest project I’ve ever worked on, but I’m happy with the way it came out… and even happier I was able to use something that I do well to contribute to my wife’s labors.

I think your wifes portion of the project looks better than yours (tell her I said that). Great looking lamp, I was wondering how it would look lit, Nice.

Have your say...
