A love bench and a double rainbow…

a 1

So I am cleaning some photos off my cell phone. My wife just had a birthday, and I made her a little love bench. But it is also a photo stand, because I carved a slot in the seat of the bench. The flowers are carefully crafted so that they still look like flowers even if the top part of the bench is covered by a photo, and I doubled up on the initials of us and the kids.

This little bench is sort of a matching gift with the tiki I made her for Christmas…

Yes, that one.

Don’t worry, we got her other stuff too.

But hand-made gifts are always nice, right? I just need to varnish it now.

On the way to work the other day, I took some pictures of a rainbow. I didn’t know, until I just looked at it more closely, that there was another rainbow, over to the right.

These aren’t the best double rainbow photos, but still…

Pretty cool, right?

  1. Happy Belated Birthday to your wife, Art! And I’m certainly glad you could give her more than little pieces of wood as a gift. I mean, I knew you’re a bigger man than that! I mean…hey, nice rainbow photos!

  2. Handmade gifts are the best. I am considering how I might make something similar, though I do not woodcarve. Perhaps out of fabric.
