1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Have you been to his house/workshop/museum in PA? It's close to my parents' home. His daughter gives tours.

    I took a few pics of one of my folks' Nakashima dining tables with chairs.

    What's the story on the captain's chair in the foreground? That's a beautiful chair, but unlike the others - it's very elegant.

    Not yet. It's on my list for this spring. Very nice, Douglas. Put your name on the bottom of the table now before your siblings discover what it's worth. Not Nakashima or Esherick, but my wife wants to buy this place just for the staircase: [​IMG] lefty

    I guess you don't like the other ones, ha.

    It's by an American craftsman named Robert Erickson.

    Funny part is I just went to his website and he has a design he calls the "Connemara chair."
