Chairs, bench and table, and teeth.

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.

waxing the underside of the bench. You can see that I add extra bracing on the legs. My chairs get just one brace per leg.

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.
