Had a lady call me from a card she saved from our first Polish event 3 years ago. She needed a Polish gift. So I had this piece of 5/4 x 12 x 16 oak just sitting there waiting for something to be carved on it - so I upgraded her from the 3/4" baltic birch I normally use. I mean, 3 years deserved something a little xtra.

That is really nice.

And what if you added some depth to this and turned it into a shallow box as a wall mounted gun safe. Magnets or some kind of magnetic lock for easy access. Carve the inset for the pistol and a magazine or two. Charge a lot. A simple, hidden lock for wall munted gun "safes" might be easy to sell. Hang it high, out of reach for little ones. Use a nail to latcnh the thing and glue a couple of magnets to the end of a short rod, and hide the rod across the bottom. The magnets lift the nail, unlatching the door. Oh oh, there I go again.

Nice work! What font did you use for the lettering?
It's Old English with my own version. I just cleaned it up by deleting all the connecting lines and added a little thickness in the W to look better.

Looks good John. It is always a surprise when people say I got your card several years ago ..... That's how I ended up doing files for the birdhouse guy.
