Progress is slow on the chair with most of my free time being spent on getting the motorhome ready to leave Friday/Saturday for Oregon.
I've turned a couple of sticks for the back to see which I like best. One is pretty thick but with a taper. The other is thin. Of the two I believe the thin one works best. The only question is can the thin one stand up to a growing four year old boy. I expect we will see.
BTW, I could turn the thick stick around and have the thick part of the taper on the bottom, and it is a thought.
I still haven't heard from the woodstore about my workbench Ash. I need to give them a call.
