    This year I decided to keep a ledger with dates and descriptions along with the recipient.
    I’m glad I did because this year also turned out to be my busiest year.
    I rebuilt, modified, and restored 40 seats this year. So thanks to everyone for keeping me busy.
    Typically I get a couple week break at the beginning of the year but I have 4 more seats ready to finish with a couple more in transit.
    So it looks like I’m ready for another busy year.

    Horizontal Spring Lobdell and an aged Garford.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

    Nice! I just sold a saddle to someone here, and it is being shipped your way for a refurb. I should have dropped a couple more in the box for some work...

    Josh.
    Can you do one of these?
    It looks near impossible, but you seem to be able to do just about anything. image.jpeg

    I had 8 saddles done last year. The last one ended badly. I will definitely be sending work your way.

    So far I haven't come across a seat I couldn't figure out.
