I retired in April soooo….shop time has NOT been an issue.

First I made these 2 custom X-Leg Stools for My daughters Bedroom. Did the upholstery too!!!

Then I made the Bent Arm Morris Chair from Pallet wood. I wanted to build this as a prototype so I wouldn’t waste any Quarter Sawn Oak. Did the upholstery here too!!!

Then My neighbors were Celebrating their 9th Anniversary, and He wanted to know if I could/would build his wife a FarmHouse Kitchen table. They were both pleased with the result.

I am now working on a replica of the 1920 Smith Flyer Car. I’ll post that in a New Project post.
