I received a parcel yesterday from my friend Paul/Shipwright and when I opened it and slowly removing the foam and paper packing material it revealed a beautiful box with marquetry of a little chickadee and a couple of the pine logos that Paul had made for me some time ago on the sides and his makers mark on the back panel .



I thought I would share this great gesture of friendship with all of you and let you enjoy it with me ..
It will be a special treasure in our home . Thank you Paul .

Klaus

The pleasure was mine Klaus. Just a return on the fine veneer hammer.

Thanks for sharing Klaus. It’s a nice piece. Paul has the talent and a heart as big as a ship. (wooden ship of course)
