Back to Stargazing...

Daisy tripped me as I walked by the Observatory this morning...

She pinned me down and hissed at me... "I need a place to sit when I am using the telescope..."

I am not going to argue with someone that can send me into outer space, never to return, if I don't do what she says...

So.  I rounded up one of the very first pieces that I ever did on a lathe, some woodsies and some leather.

I did this one basically the same as the kitchen stools, with the turned piece where the teak beads were in the other stools.

I was one short on the larger round pieces, so I borrowed one that had been drilled for a basket.  Nobody will ever know if you don't tell on me.

I padded that one with the batting and covered it with leather.

Then I stacked up the other pieces in a pleasing manner, as Daisy would say. 

Two of the large discs then a couple of small ones stacked on the bottom.  Then the turned piece.  At the top, a large disc with the covered one on top of that one.  Then I banded the top of the seat with another strip of leather...

After Daisy's approval, I was free to go. 

Remind me not to walk to close to the Observatory in passing...She is going to want the kitchen and the library finished if I get too close!

See you tomorrow.

I'm glad that you were able to please her. What would we do when you're outer space...

Hello Casey,
Don't worry, your secret is safe! You always live so dangerously!
Big hug,
