(I do know, (or at least I think I know), that there was no crocheting involved. )

Here's a TV shelf to hold the components used with a new flat screen TV we mounted in our great room. Not fancy but should work well, made from mostly white oak.

Tried my luck at putting a turquoise inlay in the lid of a box made from a cracked piece of Mexican Bocote.

Thanks all! Walt - so far I have it in the garage. But I need approval from the boss to hang it anywhere in the house/ attached garage. I have another one in my workshop. I tried to give to my BIL, but he said it's too big.with an mdf backing, it needs to stay indoors.
