Little Hands at Work






:: a little drilling

:: a little sanding

:: a few fall flowers and leaves picked

:: taking time to place them gently in the flower press

:: tightening the wing nuts

:: and now he waits, a few days, then it will be time to take a peek

  7. Seeing this project makes me want to take on wood working even more. Everyday I run into a reason to buy a jigsaw and a saw horse.

    Wonderful project Kim, thanks for sharing!
