I got out the saw and cut myself four blocks of wood from an old 2x4 headed for the fireplace. They ended up being more of a rectanglular shape. Then I sanded them. With a srewdriver and hammer I chipped a corner off. I'm going to put a coat of clear varnish on them. When they dry I will write on one side, "Just a chip off the old block". On the other side I'm going to glue a picture of the child. I'm going to write the childs name on the "chip" and glue it on the top. Have the children decorate the block special for dad!
