This was done at about age 12 or 13 In Jr. High ( that’s what it was called back then) about 40 years ago. The old wood shop class. The wood is walnut. I don’t remember what finish. But, it didn’t come out to bad. It still hangs in our spare room. I keep it because it brings back good memories. You know the first real project, the first girlfriend, we’ll maybe we should keep this about wood…. SORRY, I mean wood shop. Hope you enjoy as much as I do.

These types of projects define who we are. “Thanks for the memories” wasn’t just a TV theme song. Thanks for posting.
