Thanks to Gabe at Joseph Leonard, I met Max Steiner.  Max is a jewelry designer, sculpture, product designer and many more things.  More important, he is a doll to work with. 

I loved the lego pieces in his collection and decided to commission Max to make something for me to give to Fred.  This piece, which I love, pretty much represents what has probably been the key to our relationship.  We both love to build things.  We might go about things in a different way but at the end of the way, but it works.  We had built a family, first and foremost, a life, businesses and for good or bad, a variety of places to live. 

Needless to say, the gift was a hit.
