Mickey Mouse has a pet dog, Spongebob Squarepants has a pet snail, and I’m ok with that.

This will be a gift for my grandaughter. I have a picture of her mother at a younger age to put in, unless she meets my price to lose the picture. I have to supplement my retirement income somehow, why not blackmail?

Basswood, acrylic paints and spray poly to seal it.

Nice to see you posting something again. Great project as always. Hope all is well with you and family.
Been real busy lately with making lots of bowls. Just trying to get to be the best I can be and not there yet. I can see a lot of improvement but still suck when it comes to the final finish. I keep trying different things and that is getting better also. Guess I need to start posting some of my work.
