Busy Month its been

We have been busy on a lot of little projects for ourselves and others too. Holidays you know.  Following are some images of pieces in process to give you an idea of how some of this is done.
These are repeat cuts of the first tooth and first hair cut boxes. They seem to be quite popular. I was asked to make 2, but the material would allow me to make 4 so waste not! I will have two for the next show.
Black Walnut and Bubinga, and Cherry and Paduak.

Cherry and Paduak

Still have to finish sand and stain, mount the magnets and hinges, but they are basically there.
Do you need a unique gift for someone special for Christmas? We still have time but got to get going on it now.
