The Oldest Thing I Own


The Kalaloch Cedar

My grandfather was a hobbyist wood worker and I have several pieces of furniture he made. Some of them, he made specifically for me such as my roll top desk when I was about 10, my curio cabinet from my early 20sĀ and the hooded cradle he made when I was pregnant with my first son. The oldest piece I have is a cedar chest he made before I was ever born. I’m not even sure my father was born when this was made. I treasure all the items he made for me as well as thay cedar chest. I also have a couple of small items made by my great grandfather, his father. I’m not sure of the age of those things.
