  1. Very easy Christmas gift

    My son comes home with all kind of crafts from school. One was a full picture of him they put up on the bulletin board and we got it at the end of the year. Usually I just throw them away as soon as my wife's back is turned but this one was different. I felt like I was throwing my son away...

  5. Birdseye maple picture frames

    I bought these watercolors of the 4 Seasons during a business trip to Shanghai a couple of years ago. They aren't expensive fine art, but I thought they would be worthy enough of some proper frames. Wife got them professionally mounted on foam core, then I took over. The wood is birdseye...

  9. Simple Craftsman Hall Mirror

    Very simple design! I was going to call this a Greene & Greene style mirror since the Greenes did: A. Use wood B. Use square plugs C. Use curves but that was still really stretching it 8^) The mirror is a 12"x12" tile from Lowes, the frame is white oak with a Watco finish (medium walnut)...
