The Evolution of Wood

My brother Luke is quite the master craftsman. He was running three projects in his shop today. He built a beautiful custom frame for me using red oak.

Staining the frame.
Luke also worked with Benjamin. Together they made another custom frame - his will be a blue Hawaiin.
Luke and Sean also juggled another project - cutouts for fair display board (wooden cows and tractors are in the works). Sean is in charge of the stenciling and painting, Luke is in charge of the jigsawing.
The finished product with a beautiful baby elephant photo, a special surprise gift from Adam. I love it! (The reflection of the light makes it look a bit wrinkled, but in fact it is not at all!)
