« 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.

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.
