Here are candy dishes for the LOML’s sisters and brothers. Gifts for a reunion in July.
Oak, walnut and Behlens salad bowl finish.
The 2nd picture is the template for wall mirror/coat hanger and plant holder. They will be oak. I use the templates to cut out the blanks with an over arm pin router.

Hi Gene,

Nice work! Good to see you are so busy! I’ve got to build a mirror frame to go around an existing mirror, already on the wall. Got a template for one of those?
