Default Some thing diffrent

In fact 2 some things different. First is the sanding shelf that I made and not quite finished with it and the other is a letter opener with a stand from Steve Good's site. The letter opener broke off while I was working with it so I changed the shape a little bit and added a few beads to it and made the stand slightly different. by rounding off the top corners. The beads were a little hard to install as I don't have a bit long enough to drill into the top of the letter opener. I saw a video about adding beads to a fret work tray and I found that interesting. so I did this on the letter opener and that fixed the broken part. I want to embellish the stand and I tried cutting a letter out of a thin scrap but I can't get ahold of the wood so won't glue it to the base as yet until I decide on an embellishment. Any ideas? I think it looks great. The wood is scrap poplar but in a lighter color than the thicker wood. Enjoy Fay

Hi Fay, nice work! The only suggestion I have is to do a woodburning on the base of the letter opener to match the handle of the opener. Maybe the design could be combined with the letter you wanted to add.

I put a dark finish on the base and stand and I was able to get the letter cut out. It was tricky because it was so small. It'll look great when it is done. Every thing is layed out drying. Thanks. Have a great day Fay
