“I totally take requests.” – An Angular Anchor from 2x2s

At my first friend’s shower (the one who got this ampersand) another friend said “Oh awesome, can I have an anchor?”

I told her I don’t take requests and she’ll get what she gets.  Then I think she forgot about it. But I didn’t.  And I totally do take requests.

I thought about it for like a year, trying to figure out how I could make an anchor in the same style as the ampersand – with angles made from miter cuts instead of traditional curves.

Once I had a design in mind I built it out of a 2×2 board and gave it to my friend at her bridal shower. She was so surprised (since again, she had forgotten about it) and instagrammed it the next day with the hashtag #bestshowergift. It was also displayed at her wedding, which made me so proud!

Some of my other friends liked it as well so I listed it on my Etsy shop here, if you’d like one for your very own!
