most often just shows up with some creatively designed and immaculately constructed thing and is all, "Oh what, this? This little thing? Yeah I did it on my lunch break." And doesn't even want to blog it or brag about it or flaunt it in anyone's face. So then it's a very good thing he has me, and also that he doesn't check this blog very much, because I am able and willing to do the above blogging and bragging and flaunting for him. Maybe I can even start a new feature: "Tuesdays with the Boy" or "New Yankee Workshop: The Next Generation". Or ya know, something.
As I was saying, I should have posted this months ago but I took pictures and then it was given away to its proper giftee and I forgot all about it. Until another project in the works reminded me of this thing and well, here we are. Since I am not writing this in consultation with its creator, I will likely flub the details. But what we have is a violin (?) scroll/pegbox (?) (Google is yielding some conflicting violin diagrams and I never got along with the string section that well) turned into a wine bottle stopper. Brilliant.
