A couple of primitive yet useful items. I made a couple of cranberry scoops, the first one I made turned out just a tad bit narrow to hold the longer letters I received in the mail, the intended purpose, so I moved it to my room and put artificial plants in it and use it for decoration. The second I made a bit wider and it holds my mail fine now and it hangs next to my computer. Both made of pine and stained, but both have wood from my home from what I tore out when remodeling and the wood turned out to be thick enough for the bottom pieces so I have lumber that’s almost 100 years old in these two pieces. I hope you find these amusing.

Excellent as well. Great salvage and you created an heirloom for your children some day.
