Greetings Charles,

Looks like you are making some really good progress on the chair…...all good things come to those that wait..
I figure your Mom is getting close to wanting to sit in it…...your woodworking skills are showing now…...
Be thinking about the next project while you work on this one…..give your mind something to think about….
Looks like it won’t be long till we see a finish going on…...Are you gonna put a light stain on, or just poly?

Hey Hey Charles has a chair! You have to post a picture with you sitting in it.
