Crib with a built in legacy

I have the good fortune of being the son of a talented and very generous carpenter. My Dad built a gorgeous crib for my soon-to-be-son. Shana and I are so excited about it!

As my father tells me, it's constructed out of wood from trees that his father cut down. After it was cut down, my grandfather had it rough sawn and stored it in the rafters of the barn. My dad actually remembers playing on top of the stack of timber when he was a child. I'm happy to say that at least one more Rank child will have the opportunity to play amidst the same wood.
