Nice! Is that NYW 1.0 or 2.0? I’ll be making our Adirondacks out of wine staves.

thanks for the comments! I figure the cedar back will fade to a light grey so the end effect should be a faded red white and blue (kind of like our country right now) – Skully, it’s NYW 1.0 from an early Norm project book – the basic frame is anyway, freehanded the rest, made it wider for my big behind!

I mean, how do you NOT love carnival colors? Hmm? C’mon, everybody loves a carnival. Way cool.
