ksSlim:”Interesting choice of wood, cottonwood.”Not so much a choice as it is what I have a lot of. Cottonwood is actually a great wood for furniture. It is soft and easy to work with. It takes stain well enough to make it look like anything you wish it to look like. After it is finished it is quite stable. The only flaw I have found with cottonwood is to make sure that all sides are sealed good. If not, it doesn’t take much humidity over time for it to warp, cup, and bow every which way you could possible think of. If you have a lot of it like me, be sure to store it flat. I learned the hard way that failure to do so will wind up warped so bad that you can throw it on the floor and let your kids use it as a see-saw.

CharlieM1958:”What did you do the rest of the afternoon?”I know you’re joking, but it made me think of another guy I met one time.I done a local show and had one of my rocking motorcycles there. This is a toy that take 40+ hourse to build. There was a guy there selling those Sham-Wow things you see on TV. He stopped me and was asking about my woodwork. He wanted to know how many of these motorcycles I could build in a day. “2 or 3?” He actually asked that with a straight face.
