DIY: Build a Wood Manger for a Nativity Prop or Decoration

My husband also developed this lumber manger for a church party last year. It functions as a Nativity Story play or yard decoration as well. Made of reasserted wood and also greatly hand tools for additional authenticity. The building of the manger provides no nails or screws, just hardwood dove tailing. Great DIY for Christmas time.
