So I decided ( with a little help from Cheryl) that I would complete the assembly of the patio furniture today. It did not take as long as I had first estimated. And I'm rather happy with the results The last item, the love seat, was quite large for My small workshop. It was quite a challenge to work with it until we got it outside. Next step will be to sand and paint them all. Cheryl; will fully be in charge of painting.
