Last November (2015) I did a little video and a story about thrashing around in the mud at the mouth of the Snohomish River, salvaging a little wood from one of the thousands of storm tossed logs, stranded on the marsh.
What for me was just a fun day walking along with my axe and a saw looking for the perfect piece of raw material, seemed to generate a question from several of my friends…”What are you going to make”?
Of course at the time I had no idea. But I knew that whatever I was gonna make I needed to get the wood out of the river before the next big flood. And the chunk of log would need to be cut into slabs and stickered to air dry for several months before I could do anything with it.
So with the upcoming birthday of our dear friend Camille, I though I would make her a little keepsake box. A box made completely from one giant piece of salvaged timber.
This would be a good place to insert the video:
Susan and I ran down to Camille’s house the day before her birthday to present her with the keepsake box. I’m delighted to report that she was very pleased and surprised with her gift.
So that’s about it for this one. Thanks for following along. Kat
