I built my aunt and uncle a bench for their 55th anniversary last month. I only had two days to build and finish the bench when I found out they were having a 55th anniversary, so I didn’t take time for photos. When I went to visit this afternoon, I found they liked the bench so much they didn’t use it as a dressing bench at the foot of their bed, they used it as a coffee table in the living room. I had a small plaque made for the bench with their names and the date so that future generations would know who the bench was made for and why. I always put a heritage plaque on cradles with the baby’s name and date of birth. Then the parents can add another brass plaque for each child that uses the cradle.
