A Chipper

 

Started on the porch, two weeks ago.  Initial focus on the original barrel stave porch pillars.  Beautiful work.

Put them back together, caulked the seams, plugged and caulked the open holes … after chipping away all the old loose paint and caulking.

The center pillars have gotten two coats of white paint, since these pics were taken.  The outer pillars just one.  They all need another coat or two – but that’s going to wait until next spring.

Then do the floor.  And finish the railings.
