Purple heart heart with spalted maple stand and fortyleven coats of spray on lacquer. Presentation box is made of pine paneling leftover from remodeling the house and a band of cherry around the lid and lined with gold glitter Christmas wrap. This is a Christmas gift for my wife.

The pictures don’t do it justice. This is really beautiful. I love it (and him). It may even inspire my to clean off my desk so I can see it while on the computer!

If you use the picture for your computer “desk top” &/or screen saver….
You would not have to clean your desk!!!
Just an idea, to get you more shop time….

What a beautiful project—and sentiment! I’m sure Candy loves it!

(And Candy, you’re right about cleaning off the desk—my New Years resolution is to get crap out of my house! She’s gunna get a stem-to-stern cleaning out!)
