For show and tell Friday hosted by Kelli at There's no Place Like Home, I decided to show pictures of some of the items my son Andrew has crafted for me down through the years.
He not only makes items for me, but for other people as well. He doesn't have the time to woodwork like he used to. But whenever possible, he loves to go to his shop, get his tools out, and work with his hands.
Here are just a few of my favorites:
Bowls, balls and spoons
A jewelry box that I love. There's even a secret compartment in it.
A little turned bowl with lid
A jelly cabinet made from cherry wood.
A beautifully scrolled knick knack shelf
A wall mount quilt rack for my bedroom wall
A spice rack and towel holder for my kitchen wall
A gun rack he made long ago. It now holds Japanese swords my dad brought back from Japan after WWII
His guns are now held in this gun case he made from over 100 year old red oak. It is beautiful. He couldn't decide what to make with the wood. I said "Andrew, make something for yourself for a change." So he did.
I wanted a glider for my front porch. He said, "Mom, I'll make you one." I couldn't have bought a better built one. He even routed our name on it. It's made out of red oak. We love to sit out there in the summer and watch the world go by.
Hope you enjoyed my collection of some of the things my son crafted with love....and skill.
Come visit my sight on Saturday and see what he made especially for his brother and his girlfriend. We are having their bridal shower on Saturday and I don't want to post the picture until then. It's beautiful.
