During high school, I had a "shop" course in woodworking, taught by skilled woodworker Gene Cain. My first project was this letter holder of my own design. Then I did a major project, requiring me to select my own lumber, plane it, and construct and finish a stylish walnut bookcase, also of my own design. (I gave it to my then-girlfriend and do not have a photograph of it.) See also Sign Carpenter; Woodcarver.
