Hi Everyone

We had 14” of new snow 4 days ago, bit of a dusting yesterday, so, Spring is slow to get up here in Garland, ME. This is Ethel’s Shelf, Cindy’s Mom, who has not been with us for three years now. I made her shelf my Avatar when I first joined the site, time heals and so many good memories remain. Thanks Ethel for being an inspiration to me in so many ways. This shelf is made of Pine and of my own design, it is all wood construction, rabbit joints, lap joints, and dowel pins. It was an honor making this, I will always remember Her coming close to me and sneaking a 50 spot in my pocket, saying “this is for you”, She was a Wonderful Person and will always be Remembered with Love. Thanks for looking.
