Why no seam rippers?

If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you already know that my husband makes beautiful, hand turned acrylic handled seam rippers for my Etsy shop.  I haven’t listed any since Christmas because he has been busy with this project.  

It was a special 71st birthday gift for a family member and he just finished it up.  It’s a Shaker style lap desk.

Inside there are sections for pens and paperclips and an envelope holder.  You can put two stacks of paper in the main section, side by side.
I don’t think he has made a project of this complexity, at a small scale before so it was a challenge for him and there were a few frustrating moments but I think it came out really well.  That’s his stamp in the center of the bottom.  I designed it for him as a birthday present about 10 years ago now.  He burns it onto each of his projects.
He has a few home renovation projects that need attention now but hopes to fit in some seam rippers here and there too!
