Per a recent discussion a couple of us (also DWW2 - thanks) thought it would be interesting to have a show and tell about some of the sticks, or objects that demonstrate related skill (wood carving, whittling, finishing, etc.) that some of our ancestors may have gifted us with or that we heard about. As with our good looks, our skills and interests in crafting don't begin and end with just us! ("Great-grandfather" is a placeholder fro any ancestor, including grandma, and great-uncle Charlie.) Looking forward to seeing or at least hearing about everyone's [wooden] "roots!"
