  • Tray Puzzle Style

    I met my darling wife at Marshall University back in 76 when we were both journalism students (neither of us work in the field now). The mascot of the Thundering Herd is Marco the bull. I saw something similar to this in a restaurant in Huntington and she wanted one.
    I this as a tray style puzzle and then used various stains and a couple of touches of paint. Of course, I framed it, but wanted to get a photo while the light was right.

    Sorry about the quality of picture--shot on my flip phone and then cropped.
    When looking at the clock at work--the correct time is:
    Too early to leave, too late to call in.

    She must be a special lady for you to remember things like this. She's bound to love it too.

              I subscribe to a daily email from "homemade tools" and a few are hilarious, and some are ingenious. Here is an amusing one:

              Well done. Elk, are one of the most beautiful animals in North America as far as I am concerned.

              Lee, we have a pen turner displayed at ArtCrafters. Many of the pens are $25 and we sell maybe 4 - 5 each month. I am sure at a place like Knoxville he could more than double the price....

              We could not do that in our kitchen the ceiling and walls are way too crooked. So to fool the eye some of our cabinets go all of the way up with trim molding the others are lower also with crown molding. There is no continuous line to catch the eye.

              WHAT? We’re taking them down? Bruce decided he should have put them flush with the ceiling so we’re taking them down and raising them 1/2”!!! Do you know how heavy these are? He decided he wanted as narrow as possible, or no, molding at the top at all. And yes, Scott they have stuff in them.😲😲...
