Joshua began the stripping and we found that the corner pieces were made of oak while the body was of a less important wood. I decided to paint the body and leave to good stuff showing. It was headed for the studio but I liked the red and thought it would be neat in the kitchen. So, that's what I did.
This is today's shot of the new baby Sparrows. Still can't easily tell one end from another but they are taking on some form now.
