Very aware, but in the end it will give it character.
As I mentioned earlier, I haven’t even opened the boxes they came in. It will be an over Winter project. I’ll be sure to take some pics along the way and post them for everyone to have a look.
As for reaching out for a swap… I choose the Araucaria for the wood itself. Where I live there are more Pines than people…lol Plus I enjoy a challenge. The one I’m considering painting will def prove my lack of skills at being artistic… Scenery, designs, etc… Hard for me to draw a square…lol
