|My next project.|
|Some of the layers.|
|The frame discovered.|
|Factory made and doweled together.|
|Wear and tear.|
|Excess glue from a repair made by a previous owner.|
|More wear to the finish.|
And a plea to all of our readers: Any suggestions as to books or videos on upholstering? I'd like to have it be as close as possible to the original, but being a newer reproduction, we will be willing to make some compromises for cost an comfort.
And finally, I hope that all of our readers who observe Easter had a warm and joyous holiday with their families.
