Backyard chair

  This is a chair that my husband built sometime around 1997. It was one of his first woodworking projects that he made in a class that took at some woodworking place in West Allis on Hwy 100. It used to be a favorite chair to sit in and read a book in the backyard. […]

Dances With Dirt Devil's Lake
