This is going to be short because
1- I am exhausted and writing this in bed and almost asleep already, and
2- today was just like yesterday but more. We worked longer, harder and faster, thanks to my faithful palm sander (left at home yesterday). Look at us go.
You will notice in the background the indispensable Murphy's soap and Howard Beeswax. Not portrayed here but equally indispensable for this business of chair fixing: lots of clamps, Tite Bond glue, tung oil, sand paper.
Making definite progress for reals:
And a good night to you.
