Of course, himself being the master craftsman he is, worked it all out. And threw in a bonus set of coasters.
We finally turfed the old lounge suite inherited from his parents when they moved interstate. They were in a sad state of disrepair. We now have comfortable recliners we can snuggle into and fall asleep in while pretending to watch TV.
It now sports a trendy two-tone look.
