    Black gum trays

    These are for my sons church. They are turned from the same piece of crotch. Ripped it right down the pith, hoping it would look the same on both of them. Never does what ya want. Owell they are what they are. He really likes them, and they will be replacing the ice cream buckets there using now.

    Thanks. Ted i don't know about that, if it has anything to do with my past i'm in trouble. Have been trying to do good the last 20 years, to make up for it but you know how that goes. what's done is done so we can only hope.

    Very nicely done Ted!
    Shouldn't have to put any money in the collection plate for a while for doing those.
    I am sure they will be greatly appreciated.

    Definitely a step up from ice cream buckets, Steve. (Although I guess the bucket will hold more money.) Nicely done all the way around.
