After 13 years--and 380 frames, 134 caddies, and 91 floor
stands--the GoingGray woodworker is retiring. Mostly. He's
still planning on making rug hangers. Don't despair yet.
Jerry is working with a local Amish woodworker who is interested
in making the lap frame and floor stand. Elmer Miller and
his wife Susan are making 15 of each this fall. If they
like doing them, and we like their work, our frame and floor
stand will still be available. The fourth item in our wood
offering, the cutter caddy, will be sold until we run out, and
there are only about a dozen left.
