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.
