I surprised that Fred hasn't put some of the "newly found" chairs inside.

Eric hand carved all those blocks. They were the first pieces of the coach to be built, well before we started the frame. He was still making drawings while carving them

We next need a piece of molding to  go along the top edge of these. So far we have not found the right cutter, but Eric took a shot of regrinding one to the right shape. I have found a couple router bit that may work, so the job next Tuesday will be making the molding.

Mike photo's today (May 28th) are of the door and walls for the bathroom compartment for coach No. 9, built by Harold Downey in his Texas home shop.  It was good to see Harold again today.
What–me worry?
