These sunfaces, inspired from an old wood carving, are great bases
upon which to start a project. They have a hole top to bottom through
the edge of the 1/4 to 1/2" thick surface, which will allow wire
up to about 20 gauge to go through. We have many versions and colors
available. The edges have been sanded and on some a hole has also

$5.50 each or 6 for $30 plus shipping.View
