This sign was made by Tim's dad, Allen. Allen was a very talented man and he was a great woodworker.. I know this is where Tim gets his talent! Allen had a workshop that he built and he called it THE SPLINTER SHACK. He made some wonderful things..we have 2 Adirondeck chairs that he made and we have a picnic table, too..and lots of other treasures that he made. When Tim and I were living in Cedar Park, Texas, Tim decided that he wanted a little shop where he could do some woodcrafts... Tim's parents came down from PA to visit. Allen helped Tim build the shop and he made Tim this sign! How wonderful! Tim treasures this sign and all the memories he has of Allen...we miss you Allen. Allen passed away several years ago and he is missed so much. I think he would be happy to know that we are now living back home here in PA and that the sign he made for Tim now hangs on the door of Tim's SPLINTER SHACK! And I know he would be so proud of Tim and he would love our Craft shop.....Oh if only he was here to join us on our Porch for some porch sitting time!
Here is Tim hard at work in his Splinter Shanty.
