Why a Duck?

This post is more than six months late! Sigh...

It's my daughter Clara's first birthday present. Her big brother got a skunk bench, and now she gets a duck bench. The skunk bench was a reproduction of a family heirloom. Some families have things like highboys as heirlooms - my family has a skunk bench. Hmm.

Anyway, the duck bench is a new design, but I wanted it to have the same whimsical feeling as the skunk. I think I got it right. Before giving it to my daughter, I showed it to my son and asked him what he thought. His face lit up and he whispered "It's perfect!".

I think Clara likes it too.


  1. I love it. Nice work.

    Is it milk paint?

  2. That's so cute! And she does look as if she is enjoying that bench very much. Congratulations on a great design.

  3. I like that bench. Its also grab the attentions of babies to play with them. Handmade tools are very useful product to create these types of products.
