We are having Thanksgiving this year with my wife’s family. I decided to make each of the siblings and her dad an ornament from wood that came from my father in laws property. Each ornament will have the same story attached. Camp Bill was the name of the cabin that My FIL used to own. These are all made from a piece of oak that was fell to build some new stuff on the land. A larger portion of which was used to do the building.

All the coloring is burned. you can see in pic 4 the method that I use to do a lot of my burning. The details were done with a woodburning pen.

Thanks for looking and Happy Thanksgiving to all of you American LumberJocks.
