OK…bedtime…heading to my daughters on the Cape in the morning. We are wiring the lampost/mailbox I made her. I’ll get some pictures and post them tomorrow. Very easy and relatively inexpensive to make.

Hi Bob;
—-you’re chair is coming along great!

I also like how you are building much of your work outside and with those legs….now you’re giving us an ‘Asian’ flair to your Morris inspired chair.
Thank you.
