I just finished that sucker with one coat of Danish oil. I expect a couple more coats and then I'll ship to Houston. She went in labor this AM, so it is a good example of "just in time" supply. Who said woodworkers couldn't be modern.

P.S. Did I mention how much I hate painting. MsBubba will pay for finking out on me :-).
