Thanks for the kind words, input and a few smiles guy!
I had a little time this morning and thought I would work on the seat.
First I built the frame for the short bench style seat.
Then, I took some linen type material, dirtied it up good, and started to glue it around the edges of the bit of wood that I cut just shy of the frames outer dimensions.
I onlt glued it on 3 sides, then I took some cotton stuffing material, and stuffed the seat a little bit at a time until I was happy with the thickness.
Then I glued the last end, folding it over the edge like the others.
Then a little trimming with a scissors, and some more dirty soot colored powder.
Then I made 2 small slits with my exacto, and gently pulled some of the fibers though the opening.
And of coarse old "Gabby" had to get in to test it out, he says " It's like it was built just for me!!" I think he approves.
