C&T challenge entry
Mar 19th, 2017 at 6:36pm
 
I wanted to add a little background and history behind my entry. The material came from a factory located in Fredericton NB. The maple was used for shoe Lasts, I was fortunate enough to find a stash of these and each one holds a suprise. I cannot guess at the age but I know the pieces I have are over 45 yrs since they were in the plant. This is the factory: Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register This is the copy lathe used: Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register The last image shows an example of the material I start with, the walnut came from an organ marked 1897.

Hey Dave, how are you doing? I live in Miramichi, I was passing through Quispam last week, my older brother used to live there. It's nice to see another New Brunswicker on here.
