Nice work.

The Cypress looks very nice and I like the design too.

With the footrest and a pillow, you can have a nice nap in one of those.

From one military man to another—- hoooorah! I just took a look at those pics. It’s obvious you’re a highly skilled craftsman. Those chairs are just beautiful… I’d love to build a couple of those for my wife.
