âIn God We Trust, All Others Pay Cashâ, by Jean Shepherd. Here is a man named Chris Reeves who in the name of the lord has done a marvelous job. Chris Reeves, a school handyman has crafted wooden figures of Mary, Joseph and Angel Gabriel using some old 1960âs science desks. It took him two months, six desks (two for each) and some basic carpentry knowledge to make these sculptures. With some old teak desks lying in the school science department, Reeve carved out these 3ft tall figures using just a jigsaw.
