Prepping about 5 lbs of rough cut emeralds to embed into a counter top. Oh, the things I get asked to do…no pressure, right?

About 18 years ago, I made this tree and my wife’s father bought it from me when I still lived in Wisconsin. This was the first in the series of large scale trees that I now make.  I took an old rotted railroad tie and cleaned it up to mount the tree on. I always liked this one.

After final approval, I’ll get to make about a dozen of these with some really cool toys embedded in them. I can hardly wait!

I love this carousel!  Part of the reason I have season passes to the Bronx Zoo.
