I had a lady contact me in December wanting a custom built paper weight for her husband for Christmas, or his birthday in January. I had some old marble bases from some bowling trophies, but she was more interested in a wood base. This paper weight is to sit on his desk and he apparently is very minimalist! I spent a few nights tossing and turning over what wood I would use. I have a big pile of drift wood from the beach, but none of it sits flat and would not sit up straight. I finally found a block of wood I had saved from some other project. It was a tad bit to long, so I went to the lumber yard & had my buddy Randy cut it down and also cut some dog ears on the corners. I brought to the shop and stained it with Annie Sloan Antique wax. The wax matched the face of the golf club perfectly. My customer wanted a Ben Hogan club, as that is her husbands favorite golfer! I broke a black tee off and epoxied it in the shaft of the club. I think it turned out to be quite nice. I suggested that she put a brass face plate on the weight, but again was told that she would be lucky he would even want it on his desk. Not a clutter bug by any means! I bet he would like his name on it, but then again he really might not!!
