If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you already know that my husband makes beautiful, hand turned acrylic handled seam rippers for my Etsy shop. I haven't listed any since Christmas because he has been busy with this project.
It was a special 71st birthday gift for a family member and he just finished it up. It's a Shaker style lap desk.
Inside there are sections for pens and paperclips and an envelope holder. You can put two stacks of paper in the main section, side by side.
I don't think he has made a project of this complexity, at a small scale before so it was a challenge for him and there were a few frustrating moments but I think it came out really well. That's his stamp in the center of the bottom. I designed it for him as a birthday present about 10 years ago now. He burns it onto each of his projects.
He has a few home renovation projects that need attention now but hopes to fit in some seam rippers here and there too!
