i mentioned a while back that i started a new job in january of this year. my immediate task upon starting was to build a software engineering team for a specific project. our office admin has been incredibly helpful to me as i've stumbled through the company's hiring processes and endless chain of provisioning tasks, etc.. i made her this box as a thank you. i thought she might use it for snacks or candies at her desk.
she insisted i sign it (not in the habit of doing so though i probably should) and showed it off every chance she got. turns out two office mates are also woodworkers. the next week the admin asked if i'd be interested in a 'dahhdoe' table saw thing and some carving knives she'd scored from her brother-in-law as moving casualties..
why yes, thank you ;)
quite a pleasant series of events spawned from a few scraps, a sense of gratitude and a few nights of a favorite activity..
