Default Nice rose for my bride!!!!

Okay, I cheated... I didn't make it. Boilerman made it.

I finally got a chance to unbox it and look at it without my other half around to accidentally see it.

It's gorgeous!!!! Thanks, Boilerman!!!!

No way could I have done a better job!!!! It's reboxed, and back under the Christmas tree for three more weeks. Then it will be displayed somehow. This is one decoration that won't be hidden away.

I've got a small scrap sheet of 10 gauge in the garage that I might have to play with. Those are a cool gift idea. (I might have to scrounge around a few jobsites for some thinner gauge metal)

I guess you hear this all the time, but that is really amazing. Added to my ever growingly how-to library. Now I see why people start making gifts early in the year.
