Building a stable for my Church’s Nativity from recycled poplar beams. The beams came from the Church’s restoration in 2007 ( FOR RIVER GIRL: This Nativity Stable is in a Church next door to the GRC Memoral.)

Beautiful job. I bet that old poplar is a dream to work with.

Great work. That is a beautiful manger. I really like your drill press table. How long have you had it?

Very nice job. How very appropriate that you saved those timbers for this project. Just think of number of prayers and blessings those timbers have absorbed over 200 years. It’s very special. Merry Christmas!
