You heard about them long enough. Here they are!
Notice the fish. This fish was caught by yours truly in 1972 on a fishing trip with dad. Same taxidermied fish was nearly confiscated by same dad for failure to display properly. What better display than a shelf built with dad?
Valance number 2 is also in the office. Displaying the piggy bank that used to jingle with the sound of childhood riches.
Valance number 3 is my very favorite, and as a result it occupies the honored position above my bedroom window. I love the grain of this particular lumber.
