Well another cool (actually cold!!) front has come through, and sawdust is once again flying in my shop!! I want to thank everyone for guessing my new project. Some of them were actually very close, and a few very funny!! I am about 85% complete with construction, and I actually just have some sanding to do on the show wood before I glue it up. Then it’s on to upholstering!! Lets see if anyone cares to guess what it is now!

It’s a bi-level hitching post. You know…...for horses and kitty cats.

And the winner is….......David from Katy with the correct anwer “New Yankee Lolling Chair”. Yes David, I do plan on doing the upholstery. I’ve ordered my kit from Lee Industries, and I’ev picked out, and purchased my fabric.
Don, you should know better than to not even attempt to hitch a kitty!!

More to come.
