I was approached by the church board I’d education (my wife being a member of the board…lol) about building a manger for our Sunday School Christmas program. They already had one, but they have decided to use a real baby this year, and stability was a major issue. So I made my way out to the shop and started brainstorming on how to build a manger, and what materials to use. I aquired about 1,600 square feet of southern yellow pine flooring from a church that was torn down about 2 years ago that has been sitting in the machine shed waiting for a worthy project, and thought there couldn’t possibly be a better purpose for a few of those boards! I got to work on it without any real plan in my head, and this is what I came up with. Thanks for looking, and all comments and criticism is welcome!

I like it. Just the right look for something that special.
