    My DH has done wood turning for several yrs, primarily sculptures, furniture, and lucky for me alot of things around the house.
    Well, he has recently started getting into leather work. He made a "leather stitching horse" and decided if we were putting it in the house it needed to be even more unique. (I've figured out " code word" for grandbabies.)
    Here it is he takes the horse head off and it becomes his vise to hold leather while he stitches.
    P.S. Yes, it is BIG, but DH 6'5".

    Story behind wood, wood was milled off my parents little farm and was left from building barn about 15 yrs ago.

    He is very blessed with talent. His DM painted and his DGF taught pottery.
    I also forgot his other DGF quilted, and we still use some of his quilts.

    We are VERY lucky, I love when I'm in the hobby room and say " Uh, I wonder if ..." Then here he comes from his shop and says " This work?"

    Thank you. I'm very blessed, they are both lights in my life!
    Yes, I think he is very talented, but he gets embarrassed when I brag on him.

    Wonderful work and what a cute little girl! ( Wood working is a much better hobby than golf--although I tell people that my husband spends money on golf so that I never have to feel guilty about fabric purchases!)
