    Last minute xmas gift

    I found some refrigerator magnets and got an idea how to use up some scrap wood and clock inserts. I used a 1" forstner bit to install a washer to give the magnet something to stick to. The detail on the heads is amazing, they are made from a resin product, and actually signed and dated by the artist. Close out sale $2.50 each, bought the clocks 2 years ago at a craft store closing for $1.50 each. Wood is scrap spalted cherry and spalted maple.

    Those are super. I am scratching my head right now trying to come up with a gift idea for an outdoorsman relative. Wish I had one of those or could make one in the shop. Oh, well.

    They are cool. Nice Work.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Great idea, Jiggs. And I really like the wood combination. Not half bad for scraps, huh?
