That chair is looking awful nice Charles.
Do have Mom making the cushions for this one too?
I like the finish on this one better then your first one.
It just fit in there.
It looks like your Mom is a collector of pictures and plants like my Mom was.

Charles you already do great work. We don’t quit a thing to get better at it. i think you enjoy and love what you do. staying at it can only make you better. All the machinery and tools you’re putting together now is only getting you prepared for more challenging projects.

Chairs are hard to do and the Morris chair particularly so, I know as I have just finished one. I got to redo a couple of parts and it took an unexpectedly long time to do and get it right but I am happy with it and the effort was well worth it. You should be pleased with yours as well and I am sure it will become a family heirloom.

Alll the best
