      1. Glad, again, not to be from the cold cold North. *hugs beloved Yemen, where a brand-new woodworker might be able to make something she could sit in*
      2. Other than being made of thinner and stronger would, do you know the differences in basic design? I'd be interested to learn more, because the one picture I did see was very similar to the bog chairs that are so common at SCA events, barring the styles of carving/decoration.
