I recently gave my dad's table saw to my son so he could start his work shop. I came across this picture of my dad using the saw I gave my son. He said he would like tha picture to hang in his shop - so I had a 10 x 12 picture made and carved this frame for him. And yes - my dad died WAY too young! ps - sorry I have not been around - been fighting some medical issues - just now getting back in frame (no pun intended - LOL) of mind to get back in the shop and do some work.
I was approached by a gal at work asking if I could make a custom cane for her father who needs to use one, but refuses to. I gathered some information from her about her father: 1) he was an avid cb'er - handle was night hawk 747 2) he loves fishing 3) he is a man of God (a minister) 4) his name is Sam 5) his favorite bible verse is Philippians 4:16, and..... 6) he loves the "fish" symbol With that information I proceeded to layout a customized cane for Minister Sam i am extremely glad to hear he refuses to leave home without it and he is excited that the cane initiates many conversation providing him the opportunity to preach the Word of God. Some of the pictures are before the cleanup after staining. I lightly sand the piece to cleanup the areas where the stain got onto the surface.
