Why Big Red?

Many moons ago, my Grandpa, Grampy, handcrafted a toy box for me in which I placed my greatest treasures. Mostly stuffed animals and my prized record player; I can’t tell you how many times I played Cyndi Lauper’s “She’s So Unusual” and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” albums. But I digress (it’ll happen often, bear with me). On this toy box, Grampy engraved “Big Red’s Toy Box”. He was one of a handful of people that was allowed to call me this and this blog is in his honor. Perhaps in some way this toy box also inspired my woodworking endeavors. The chair in the photo is my mom’s from her childhood home, and the blanket was my grandma’s. Full circle! IMG_6283
