Thank you so very much to everyone that helped with the state quarter map... in case some of you don't know, this was to be a christmas gift to LOML (a couple of years ago) and is made up with woods that actually came from the state from which it was cut out. I still need to gather my info with everyone's stories and names to go in the book that will (eventually) go with the map, but needless to say I couldn't have done it without all of you. Your generosity and eagerness to help have truly made this a labor of love.

Thank you again, I'll post an update with all the woods once I've compiled them...
Lawrence

ps- the empty spaces are for 4 quarters LOML is replacing

Looks really great Lawrence!
You made her very happy.
What quarters is she looking for? Post them and just might get them faster.

Looks great Lawrence. Glad to have helped out.

You have to publish the book here. That should make some great reading.

Great project, great execution, great result.

I am also glad to have been able to contribute to such a great piece of art. All the different woods really sets it off and by no means was that an easy task. Congratulations.

Good job, Lawrence. I like the way you've made the grain go different directions--good way to help distinguish between the different states.

Thanks again all... It really was fun to do and what a project...

LOML has fun collecting the quarters, but thanks for the offer anyway Bob.

There is absolutely no way I could have done this without y'alls help... it really is a WWA project (but I'm going to keep it on my wall ;)

I can tell LOML likes it because when I offered to put it up in my son's room she said no way and pulled down a picture in the living room and had me put it there.... high praise indeed

The final project differs from the plans in that LOML decided she did not want the glass/acrylic over the front, she likes to feel the pieces.

Thanks again all,
Lawrence

I have to agree with her on that, I think it would have distracted from the natural beauty of the wood, and it makes you want to feel the different woods :thumbup:
