Sweet Gum Hat

Finished this today.  A bee may be a strange decoration but I did two of them anyway (one on each side).

That is very very nice. I like the bee. The bee is a symbol of being industrious, and you are very much so to build something like that. That is nice.

I am not critical,  I just got bees so I like that to.  I do wish you would show the process of making something like that.  I doubt I would try it anyway cause I can't draw a strait line with a ruler but it would be neat to have a "how it is made" segment on this.  Beautiful!
