Figure 113.  Glut and basket

As a child, when Waiters would pass his Uncle Ruska’s home, he would stop and watch the old man work.  If Gregg wanted to split strips of white oak to make a basket, he would say to little Archie, "Get my number two glut."  The child would run to the box that contained eight different-sized gluts and return with number two.  Years later, when Gregg was too old to work, he gave Waiters that glut.  (Photo 1984)
