My girlfriend and I are at that point where we're both in college and realize we don't have money to go out together that often or to buy each other gifts, so it's not a big deal to us. But I've been wanting to get her something... In fact, I thought about getting a solid block of wood and carving something. She's in love with music. She loves her violin. She loves everything about music, any kind of music. That's what she's studying in college. Just give me some ideas... I thought about carving a violin out of a solid block of wood. I have all the time in the world to finish such a thing, since I'd just do it in my spare time and she has no idea. But when you look at a violin, I'm not sure how to do certain things. I also thought about doing the music note. Not sure, though... That may be easier, cause I could just jigsaw most of the big stuff and slowly sand it to perfection. It doesn't have to be wood carving. Just something. Right now I'm kind of stumped.
