Default christmas is coming...

...so i have to make presents for two 8 year old girls that will be staying with us this year (no, I'm not making boxes for their parents!)

This is the first one, my grandaughter is horse crazy, she rides every weekend and is about to start leading the ponies around at the stables.

Made with rosewood and maple. The purpleheart handles are supposed to look like part of the saddle. I only put them on one side though. it would have gotten complicated otherwise

Nice. That design would make a nice coin bank too.

Or enlarge it and make a Christmas spirit cabinet.

Sounds legit to me

I remember back in the day ,we had a paint booth in the drive bays , and I repainted part of my truck.
Worse thing ever was telling people I did it myself,as people just came out of the wood work wanting there vehicles fixed for nothing .
I learned to say no quickly

Cute as can be, useful too.

That's a gift for a young girl for sure. Put some cute earring in there if she's got pierced ears, or a pretty heart and chain, to top it off.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
