Judging by the upside down box- a traveller maybe?

I think I'd go crazy waiting for it to dry so that it could be put together! Happy spinning!

Hmmmm - okay, but what is pony lacing please? :D

Probably 2 more days of rubbing in the stain, then I will be out of town for the weekend for symphony. This is a good thing cos it gives the stain a chance to be thoroughly dry. Hopefully I can begin the sealer Monday or so ... another three to four days of applying thin coats. I think she will be ready to assemble by next Thursday or Friday. This all depends on the rate of drying affected directly by the humidity .... and my schedule.

I'm sorry, pony BEAD lacing. It's what kids use to string pony beads on to make necklaces, etc. You can find it in the craft section next to the beads. It has a stretch to it and really grabs the wheel. You can also buy it from spinning places, but plan on spending about $8 for enough to string one wheel, or you can get it at a craft store for $1-$2 for enough to string a couple wheels.

It comes in a wide variety of colors too!
