Her other Dad

Her other DadOur daughter Sydney asked me to help make something for her other dad that she had seen on the internet. She was five when I married her mother, and has been a daughter ever since. Her dad re-married and she now has two half sisters.
Syd came out to the shop and went through a lot of wood before she found the perfect piece. I tried to help her design the graphic in Corel Draw, but could not figure out how to cut out the part where the names would be. I had to give my son a call and he figured it out for us. Syd picked the fonts and the sizing of the names.The wood is a piece of curly red oak. When we lasered in the names the letters took on a life of their own. It looks even better in real life.We are so very happy with the way it turned out. You just do whatever it takes to make your children happy.

100 Toolboxes

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


100 Toolboxes10 years ago my current shop opened for business. My big shop door opens onto an alley that parents and children use for various errands and what-not. Back then I started an endevour that has I believe come to a close. I felt that every child should have a tool box. Able to carry around tools, lego's, art and what-have-you. Always given, never sold. Each child in my neighborhood has one including 2 that weren't born at the time of their construction. It of course expanded beyond the few blocks that surround my shop. The children now have grown and new ones are not too frequent visitors anymore. What you see is #'s 99 & 100. A grand number to wrap up on. Hard maple, milled to 1/2”. Personalized with a routed in name and presented each time with a smile. My fondest memory is of the grand parent who asked for one as a christening gift. Who coming back 3 weeks later presented me with a picture of their new grand daughter swadled up and laying in the tray of her toolbox with her name proudly displayed. This folks is why we do what we do.
