A chain whittled in a toothpick..

We were sitting on the couch one day when some friends arrived. THey said they had been to a wedding where they were able to get some finely milled lumber for a project for us....HUH? well, they whip out this plasitc container with fancy toothpicks in it and say,"lets see you carve a chain in this lumber!" well, needless to say, Stacy did it! it took a couple trys, and once it was completed we took it up to show them. Well, what is the first thing they do, but pull on the ends....of COURSE it is fragile, what did you think?! carving it our made it stronger?!?! so, after that, they were always exhibited in glass housing! Mom got one as a gift, we sold one, and this one is in our collection. Stacy has carved alot of chains out of wood. But this one certainly shows off his attention to detail. We also made the platform and glued the chain into the glass housing. Anyone looking for a really unique conversationstarter coffee table gift for someone who has everything? bet they don't have one of these!
