She goes to the local craft fair and comes home with a laser cut sheet metal representation of a pine forest. She hands it to me and says, “Here make something with this.” :)

The inner Oregon is composed of blocks made from fir construction lumber. That is set recessed inside an Oregon shaped frame of poplar. The star represents the community of Boring, Oregon. A strip of LED fairy lights are set in the void to highlight the border and back light the trees.

Normally we give this kind of thing away as a gift, but the missus decided she wants to keep this one.

What a really cool idea. And so well done. I understand why she wants to hang onto it.

Endless possibilities.

That’s a great suggestion and I just might give it a go if I create another state shaped project. :)
