Father's Day Present

Shhhh, it's a secret....   look what I made my hubby.  Since we are moving and he is going to FINALLY have his own office, I wanted to make him something for it.  He really likes the coastal / beach style, but he is in love with Mac and is a program application engineer ( or something like that).  So this is what I came up with to combine the two worlds...

What he does is WAY over my head, seriously, it's in a different language, like 8 differnt languages, json, um.. ok, I can't remember the rest. Just give me a blade and some paint.


So I got this oar from craigslist for $10.  It's pine (I think). Not the best carving wood.  I had been searching high and low for a chisel set and never found one cheap enough.. so I carved the whole thing with my Exacto  knive (don't laugh).

It seriously took me at least 20 hours to finish over the course of a month and a half. But I finished it.. and early, at that. Wahoo...

I hope you like it, and more importantly, I hope he likes it. Check out his website, that he never had time to work on because he's too busy working, LOL http://stephenrhyne.com/
 I'm so blessed  to have such a great man to be the FATHER of my children. He is the smartest,  hottest, hardest working man I know.
