« Part 8: still one more update Part 9 of sawdust chronicles challenge series no next part

I didn’t get it done in time. The old back was protesting too much.

I’ll add a few new pics of what is done so far for you all to check out.

I hope to finish it yet, but will have to let my back rest up first. Stay tuned.

Beautiful job, Paul! It will be there when you are ready to finish it. Right now you need to take care of yourself and your back and give your body the rest it is asking you for. I realize how frustrating it can be, but we will all be waiting anxiously when you are ready to proceed. So far it looks wonderful.

Take your time and heal, my friend!

You bit off a lot with this project Big. Was wondering how it was coming along and then saw this about your back. Hope it’s doing better. Looking forward to seeing more (but please don’t rush, let that back heal properly)...

Hi Chip.

Back is still giving me problems plus the missus is having troubles with a diabetic ulcer on her foot, so I haven’t been in the shop at all lately, but I’ll update this when I can.
