Every time I finish a project, I seem to “lose” them to my wife. When visiting a WoodCraft store I picked up a couple items so I could make things to help me at work: I am an Office Manager at a book distribution center. My last project got diverted from my desk to my wife’s desk, but that worked out for the best.

I have some scrap pieces of walnut lying around the shop, so I am making my desk accessories out of walnut. This one is a simple letter opener, but it is my first turning of this type. It won’t be my last.

You should make it a point to always make something for her first.

By the way, very nice.
