« Part 2: More On MY Grandfather Part 3 of My Grandfathers Woodworking cont... series no next part

I had some trouble trying to get a good video of the lathe working but I’ll keep trying. In the mean time, here are some pictures of a sewing box he made for my grandmother. It was started in 1931 and completed in 1934. It has over 2300 pieces.

Doug, first of all…welcome to LJ’s.

Second…Bigike says it quite well…WOW. That is a spectacular piece. I got my love of woodworking from my grandfather – so the title grabbed my interest – I just ran into this post….will have to see the ones prior.

-- Woodworking.....My small slice of heaven!
