Here are 2 photos of the frame at this point. There is still much woodworking yet to do. I have pieces of wood soaking in water right now. These pieces will be shaped after they have softened and can be bent without breaking. This part of the project is not my favorite, but there is no way around it. Wood fibers must be either steamed or soaked, and as I don't care to build a chamber to steam the wood, I let it soak in water until I can bend it. Working outside on the back porch is nice. I enjoy the warmer weather and the sunlight. Construction & Design by F. D. Zigler.

Thursday evening I got together with a few old friends that I worked with at the Ohio Bureau ofWorkers' Compensation in Columbus, Ohio. We all worked in the Investment Department and really got along with each other quite well. There are many good stories to tell, but that will have to wait for another time. I hope we can do this again, and it would be nice to see a few more faces if they can make it.
