I handcrafted each “branch” to create a Christmas tree for my wife’s parents. The leaves are stained poplar, and the base, spacers, and topper are cherry.  Creatively, they redecorate and rearrange it year-round. For the fall, they hang colorful leaves and owls on it. Each holiday season, they move the branches, decorate it with lights, and situate a train around its base. During the spring, small flowers sit on each branch.
