The greatest gift of all....







My brother and I have a $30.00 limit for exchanging gifts at Christmas. You can imagine my surprise when I arrived at my parents and there was a big tarp hanging. They made me wait until last before I could look behind the tarp. I was so surprised! My brother had hand-crafted/designed this beautiful bed for me. It took him a couple months to build. He sanded every piece of Cedar making it smooth and then torched all of it for a weathered look. I got him a sweat suit.... Gifts from the heart are the best. I will always treasure the bed and it is sure to be a family heirloom.

He did an absolutely incredible job on this bed! Being a cabinetmaker myself I know the time and effort he put into this. He must love you very much!
