A Personalized Cheese Box--MASTER CRABBER

A man who saw my signs asked if I could personalize a cheese box for him.
He likes to go crabbing, so he wanted a crab to go on the lid.

I went over to the Graphics Fairy to find the perfect crab.

He wanted the sides to say 'Master Crabber'.
I used the Engravers Mt font.

The lid was empty with just Mr. Crab, so I remembered him saying that he liked to go crabbing on the Wye River.

I was very pleased with the way the crab turned out.

I stained the whole box with dark walnut stain.

I love how the stain collected in the crevices of the box. 





He was so excited with the way it turned out; as he was talking to me he was throwing money at me for a tip.       He came back in a half hour with 2 more orders, and he slipped me another $5.  He said that his wife loved it so much that she stole it for her sewing box. He told me she also said he didn't give me enough money :)
I think I appreciated the compliments way more than the $$$.  It always feels good when you make a customer happy!
