I had an offcut from milling a walnut log a couple years ago that I thought would make a nice plaque for my wife's first mother's day as the mother of a human. She also like brass and loves the combination of brass and walnut so using some brass rods, I attempted to write out the year, our son's name, and our dog's name. This was a fun project but I wish it was easier to coax an infant into making a hand print. I had to wipe away the paint a few times and retry. That left some smeared paint on the surface but that serves as a memory of the fun I had playing in paint with my son.
