Mother's Day Handprints with a Turned Wood FrameMother's Day Handprints with a Turned Wood Frame
By: Matthew Wilson
This is a wonderful project both for the kids that make the hand prints and for the recipient that will treasure these memories forever.

Matthew turned these wood frames from re-claimed wood (2" x 8" stock) and used a standard mix of Plaster of Paris for the hand print medium.

Any mother would be thrilled to have one of these!
