DaninVan Just got back home last night, ckecked in here this morning and saw this thread. Great job, Herb!!!
I have to say though that putting it beside the fireplace is tempting fate...on a Winter night when his ankle is throbbing. (Always blame the inanimate object. )

Dan1951 Well done, Herb. It's an inspiration to "think outside the log." ;-)

Herb Stoops An update on the box, I gave it to him on Monday and he was very genuinely happy with it. It sets in his living room off to the side of the gas fireplace on the hearth. It kind of looks at home there too. Just what he needed to cheer him up a bit.

JudgeMike Even though unlucky events brought this all about. I can't think of a nicer way to tell him, "You are my friend". A true friend you are Herb. He is a lucky man in that respect.

Tom, here are some pictures of some that broke when installing and I had to re-make them.
It took about 3 sets before I got usable ones. The cedar likes to split easily, that is why cedar makes good shingles for roofs. But this illustrates how much they had to be ground out conform to the curvature of the log.

ScottyDBQ Original, creative, useful, beautifully crafted -- and a real conversation starter -- he must be very pleased with it.
