Put in some time, but completed the gifts for our departing Command Master Chief.
1) Teak wood box from a salvaged “shipyard block” reinforced with dovetail splines in addition to brass nails and leather hinges. The coin on the front is our current CPO Mess design with two dragons forming MUSTIN’s hull number 89.
Inside is an installed Teak frame and a photo of the ship.
2) Hand-made “Moleskin” notebook cover (inspired by Saddleback☺️ as imitation is the sincerest form of flattery) with an additional pen-lock closure. It is made from Tandy Leather’s 4.5oz Stoned Oil leather, and lined with 12oz Japanese wave pattern canvas & gold pig skin.
3) turned a Bolt style action ball point pen in brass with Blue Mahoe and Keiyaki (Japanese Zelkova) to keep the whole “blue & gold” theme.
There are a couple of small mistakes, but hopefully they will make it more personal

Great prezzie Woz... I’m sure he’ll treasure it.
