Manger and Child

I built a manger from scratch and am “reborning” an infant Christ doll for a photo shoot. Thanks to help from my daughter Lindsay, I created a blueprint and cut 2x4s and 1x4s to match, staining the boards and holding them together with screws. Originally thinking I could use wood from old pallets, they proved both too strong and too weak to produce usable pieces. Plus they have all sorts of tiny and not-so-tiny passengers. 🙂
