thanks A-A and RodeoTiki....I am thinking
of a two tone job on this guy...mahogony
on the little feller on bottom and a
lighter stain on top...have also thought about torching...I've never done it but
how tough can it be right? Not sure
about the wood...leftover from a remodeling
project...probably good ole wisconsin pine.

Looks teriffic! I'm partial to lighter stains, but I'm sure it will look great no matter what you choose. Everything you do keeps looking better and better.

I hope we can meet again before to long. Let me know if you and your wife are ever in the area.

Maybe. It would take some planning on my part with babysitting and all, but it's not impossible. Couldn't do it till after the holidays though.
