My wife’s Christmas present I made for her. It’s made of mahogany, lacewood, walnut, coccobolla, cedar, basswood, and douglas fir. It’s supposed to be a Chickadee sitting on a limb. Took me quite a few hours to make it, I had to hide the project when I wasn’t working on it so she wouldn’t happen by and see it. A pure labor of love for my sweet wife at Christmas!

-- I did measure it twice, it's still too short.
