26 Dec 16 Update:
It has been fun to look at other boat shop sites and look for their benches and stools. One funny time lapse video you could see the shop stool wandering all over the place like a little dog. Our little guy has helped on several projects and has a nice patina going now. I guess we could call it "Waldo" because we have fun finding out where it is at. :)
