I made this Cajun Cabin in a workshop at the Gulf South Miniature Show several years ago. The wood is cypress, hand-cut by Keith Long, who taught the workshop with his wife and daughter. Some of the furniture inside was made in another workshop later on, under Wayne Lasch.
Another year, Jean Lafitte, our well-known local pirate, was featured in several ways. The vignette for that year was Lafitte's cabin room. A special workshop was the forge in Lafitte's blacksmith shop. There is a building in the French Quarter called Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop, a popular bar.
