I got my wisdom teeth out today. Something I probably should have done when I was much younger but it is now done. The timing was good as I just finished up with a big order of a table, 6 chairs and a 6' bench. They are pictured below and will be picked up tomorrow am by the shipper who will take them to California. Not only was it a nice size order but they are all pieces that I really enjoy making.
Below are one each of my New Waltham chairs. They seem to have taken over as my best selling chairs.

|Our mailbox. I was picking up the mail on my way back to the house and had my camera with me... The rusted box sits on a length of honey locust that I cut from our yard about 6 years ago. It has been hit by the plow, batted with a baseball bat a few times and once someone drove right over it. (there were tire tracks on either side of it.) The box is a replacement (#3 I think) but the post has lasted through all that. Honey Locust. It's just tough wood. Our postal service has had it tough too. We'll see if it lasts.|
Enjoy the brown winter.
