You are right because Pinterest is another site that has good pictures of whatever you are looking for just like using Google.

Thanks for your suggestion Kaitlyn!

The most popular thing I've made for birthdays and holidays has been the day of the week clock that was posted by the Professor:
The only thing I did different was to use Purpleheart for the box around the clock part, and it made a nice contrast with the oak top and bottom.

The second most popular has been the angled clock originally posted by Mike from Detroit, and The Professor posted a refinement to the cutting jig here:

I already have the toy box idea covered. It will look just like the one for their cousin, just different names.

This last year at Christmas, I had a piece of Cedar. I cut it up in 12" by 12" squares. In the middle, I cut a square. It was 3/16 of an inch deep. I cut the square to fit a 5 X 7 picture using a pallet cut and a 1/4 inch end mill bit with my C N C Machine. I placed a picture of my grandchildren in the hollowed-out square. I placed a piece of glass over it and sealed it with silicone. Around the picture, I engraved the names of each child in the picture.and their Birthday Dates also. We did this for each of our families. At the top of the plaques, I carved the family name of each family and their wedding dates. I do not have a picture here to show, so I hope this may explain well enough to give you an idea. The wood I used was 1/2 inch thick. I put a hanger on the back and glued a swinging clasp on the back so the plaque could be hung or stood up on a table or bench. I finished them before carving the letters and such on them with clear shellac. I sanded them a couple of times to gain the shine I wanted. There was very little touching up to do when I finished the C N C Work.
