These are some skis I refinished for my brother-in-law for Christmas.
My sister & he built their dream home in a popular ski destination
in the Laurel Mountains of Pennsylvania.
Here they are in my workshop after sanding.
After some stuff was removed from them & they were sanded, I used wood filler
to fill in the holes & scratches, then stained them & painted
"Stone Family Lodge Est. 2009'
on them (2009 was the year they built their home) using black acrylic paint.
On each mitten, I used a metallic silver paint pen
to paint the names of each family member.
Finally, I coated them with polyurethane to seal it all.
Here they are all finished for the gift exchange on Christmas Eve.

It was discovering someone I had always been."
