A lady in our park has a disabled grand daughter who loves dalmatians so she bought her a cookie jar with the 101 dalmatians but it had no lid . She asked if I could make her one and said the girl has a problem grasping so I made it with a hole in the handle to put her finger through to lift it.

It is made from male pistachio and is about 6 1/4” diameter and 1” thick. It is finished with clear lacquer.

This is the last project for me in the park this year. We leave on the 24th for Michigan.

That wood is beautiful. You did a great job making that lid, she is going to love it. Give yourself a pat on the back for being a kind person who cares about others.

What an unbelievably pulchritudinous arboreal specimen. You gotta hand it to the nutwoods, huh?

Jim..That was very kind to look after the Lady’s Grand Daughter It would be really appreciated I am sure.

That Pistachio wood is beautiful, fantastic swirling grain patterns!!! The Clear Lacquer really brought out the natural beauty of the grain.
Safe trip back to Michigan.
