"THE" chair

It all started a couple of years ago, while cleaning out the barn.
We re-visited a pair of vintage water skis that had belonged to Grandpa.
The hamster wheel in mom's head started spinning.
So, more skis were purchased at garage sales and from Craig's List.
We consulted with talented craftsman and neighbor, Arnie (There in the Hawaiian shirt).

Stop messing around Dad and let Arnie do his magic!

TA DA! 
It is complete! We love it very much and it smells good too!
Stanzie gives it 4 paws up!

Fond family memories, forever on our front porch.

THANK YOU, ARNIE!
We  ♥LOVE♥  it!

Wyatt and Family

  3. You are welcome Guys!!! It looks like you have already taken over possession of the chair Wyatt. Make sure you jump on it quickly if you see Mom or Dad heading toward the chair.

  22. That's one cool chair you guys got there. Since your Dad watched Arnie build it, will he attempt one of his own? Then you and Stanzie can have your very own and not have to share!
