Lake Gaston will be 50 years old this summer, so I am making some projects for a June craft show. All done with scroll saw. Take a breath is a mahogany base with Baltic birch for lake and red oak for letters. The weather station/clock uses blood-wood for base and the lake tray is Baltic birch and red oak with clear plexiglass.

That’s a cool idea! Like the woods, river outline and the fonts used. They are great tributes to your place.

Have your say...
