I've been battling a head cold for the past few days, hence the lack of new posts. I did manage to repair my vintage Ranch Oak platform rocker, which was completely falling apart and required regluing of most of the joints and the replacement of one of the dowels. here are pictures of the chair clamped up for one of the regluings and the finished chair.
I set the table for Thanksgiving today, anticipating 10-11 diners, and only ended up with 6, as half bailed at the last moment due to conflicts with other obligations. We had turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, sausage cornbread stuffing, rolls and cranberry sauce.
