Footstool frames

All week, frame after frame has gone through the restoration process - feels like I've done millions of them! Stripping, re-gluing, re-finishing and we've still got the seats to weave yet. But it is satisfying to look around the workshop now......

Piles of frames everywhere! The soda blasting of the American rocking chair was only partly successful, so I will have to persevere with that one another time. Meanwhile, talking of perseverance............

Word of the Week:

Assiduous -constant in application or effort; working diligently at a task; persevering; attentive.

It's been a good week here for "assiduous".

Wisdom of the Week:

"I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labour of the industrious" - Thomas Jefferson 3rd US President!

And he said that over 200 years ago, so what's changed.......?
