This is my latest marquetry project. My Grandson is a big fan of Mickey so this is for his room.

Years ago we used to go to DisneyWorld 6 or 8 times a year. I started collecting some Micky pieces. Here’s one of the cells the wife bought me one year for my birthday. Yours is Excellent. You captured him very well.

Hey Lenny; Yeah, right now he thinks it is great. But I can just see him at 16 saying to his buddies, “want to come up to my room and see my mickey mouse” :)

John.. are you KIDDING? When he gets older he may put it away and tell folks that it’s “Too babyish” but I’ll bet he’s gonna keep that thing Fo’EVA!
And I’d also bet that he passes it down down to HIS Grandchild one day
