My wimping on about not getting a prize for my 3 legger caused a couple of comments about voting (notably from
Eric Bloodax Rick McKee, master hewer) . I’ve never tried this before so I thought I’d set up a poll, just for fun, and you should be able to see this in the right sidebar (may need to scroll down a bit or go to the “Home” page until I find out why if you go to an individual post no right sidebar info shows grrr!)).
Just to remind you, here are the stools in question:
The three legger (Must get that focus sorted man! -Ed).
The 4 legger with pretty flowers (Are these shots taken in a stone quarry? -Ed).
Enjoy your voting – you can see the results with a simple click, unlike the retro polling of the political variety.
At the moment I feel a bit like a square peg in a round hole, bursting to fit in, where is that fitting hole? Where is the support for 17th century joinery? Should I try the Worshipful Company of Joiners? Am I just too square?

Some is rather poor, but still has a chance – if the deer will only leave it alone:
But around 25% have died
