Well I thought I’d have this thing finished, ready for upholstery today, but man this thing has been a challenge!! Well at least I got all the parts built, and fitted, and finally glued. I’ve started sanding the left arm and got all the joints flush. Next will be the right arm, then the outer parts of the legs. Then once I finish that, I’ll go over it one more time with 220 grit, then apply a finish, then upholstery. Wish me luck on upholstery, I’ll need it!! After that, I’ll post it to my projects! Enjoy!
