I just putter away now and again, so it's hard to say how much time. I'm never in much hurry.

I call it the king's chair, king of what I don't know. ;D  :D

SD,
You bought some thread or twine in Bay City from a friend of mine last summer.
Was that used on this project?

Your chair is gorgeous by the way.

Linen twine to anchor the springs to the frame. I bought enough for a lifetime. ;D It's the best you can get to. ;)

Thanks! Keeps a man busy when it's cold out. Much nicer wood working or weaving in a dry warm place.  :)
