The crib is a Shaker design.  The wood was from two large logs that a large industrial machine stood on, and was reduced to handleable size.  All seven grandchildren started life in it.   It is waiting for great grandchildren !

After retirement from the aircraft and motor industries, I took up woodwork and created the subjects of this 2nd exhibition.  (See the July exhibition for my painting and drawing, now all sold). 

I'm currently getting a workshop built to resume woodworking, and plan to concentrate on small items mainly children's toys.
