My son was at a store the other day and saw a miniature Zen garden and asked if we would buy him one. Of course I said, “Heck no, I’ll make you one.” I used wood from my father’s estate so it has a personnel touch also. I believe the main wood is Peruvian Walnut with Oak corner inserts. The bottom is oak, and the rake is just birch dowels. It is finished in Tung oil with a lacquer over that. Measurements of course are TLAR (that looks about right).

-- Sure Dear, I can make that for you. Lemme just run out and get a tool I need for that.

Hey, you can give those out as Christmas gifts! Looks as good or better than any you’d buy in the store.

Cool!

Maybe a woodworker should use sawdust instead of sand. :-)
