I have been a bit scarce of late as I was finishing up a custom project at home it turned out quite well actually so I thought I would share a pic of the finished project. Big Grin

Had a bit of help on this one but I think it was worth the effort and I expect it to get even better with age.

Congratulations! Now I suggest doing two things. 1: Enjoy a good cigar ('cause that's what your supposed to do on this occasion, right?) and 2: Enroll yourself in what I call the "Fathers of daughters birthday program." In this program, every time your daughter has a birthday, you buy yourself a shotgun (you could go with a sword, but shotguns are traditional). That way, you will be prepared, in a couple of decades, to have some buddies come over and help fend off the would-be boyfriends. Razz

Those are the best kind of projects. I have two in my own collection. They require a lot of maintenance but wear well with age. Laughing Out Loud
