Christmas Projects

The time of Christmas gift giving has come and gone, but not before I could snap a couple of pictures of some projects that Melissa and I gave away. We were feeling especially crafty this year so we made a bunch of our gifts. It really was a lot of fun and gave me an excuse to do a little bit of wood working. Melissa came up with a great idea to make a recipe box for her sister. So I built the box and she painted it. Melissa wrapped it up before I could get a picture of it with the paint on it, which is unfortunate because it looked really awesome with her added genius.
And for Melissa's dad, I made a pipe. He's a woodworker himself, so there was some added pressure to make something extra cool. He had given me a few small boards of dark walnut from a tree in his back yard and I had to do something with 'em.
There were a few other fun projects that I didn't get a chance to photograph. Anyway, happy new years everybody!
