Sailing Forth

First time I went to the Denver Hook-In. I purchased this sweet little bench. I saw so many possibilities. I took it home and worked it over with sandpaper and stain. I then wanted to hook it with a sweet little boys theme. I came up with a sea theme ( guess it was the blue paint).

I have had many show interest in owning the bench and some regrets of ever selling it (thanks Carol).
So I had  my personal carpenter create some for my site. Here it is unfinished and ready to paint.

And here it is painted and ready to hook.

And here it is hooked . I did make some changes to the design, mainly the back pattern. I tittled it  "Sail Forth With Light".


  1. How very clever and beautiful, Tonia !
    I am thinking you have just the little boy in mind for this bench - maybe a grandson ?
    Your work is lovely, thanks for sharing.

  2. When did you have time to do this? Yes I know your an overachiever. I like the new version even better. Can't wait to see you and hear all about the Denver Hook In
