Take A Seat While We Wait On Kent O. Smith’s Report.
Well, art takes time to craft. And Kent’s images are certainly worth the wait. I have seen a teaser, and MOMMA MIA! The St Michael’s Report is gonna be a jaw dropper. So today, we have the Higgin’s Chairs. Ya ya, I know. But I got what I got. So just sit down and enjoy, or at least pretend to enjoy.
Last night we had a fun little get together and tried them out. NO BREAKS! WOOHOOO!
YOU CAN SEE THE OLDER STORY ON THE CHAIRS HERE!
I wonder why the original stencil had an apostrophe in the Higgins name. Grammatical error from back in the day?
Or did I miss something?
Wondering the same.
BTW Matt, you have created a truly magical space.
I copied exactly what was there. If you look closely at the original it is there. It was meant to be! Ha
I figure somehow Andrew Jackson Higgins knew that one day his chairs would be featured on WoodyBoater and wanted to spell just like Matt. Just one of the boys I guess.
You never cease to amaze me Troy!
I like the chairs…………………..nice ART work.
What is the table made from? It goes nicely.
The table is a Ceiling panel. We think, found in a pile. I cleaned it and oiled it. Regarding the ” ‘s ” maybe since it belongs to Higgins, therefore an ‘s as a posesive. possesive? That thing
Thanks Mark in Ohio!
Matt since the name is Higgins shouldn’t it then be Higgins’s?
Actually I think there is a story here. See these chair were actually owned by Bill and Lyla Higgin so they were Higgin’s. The receipt was falsified just to try to show ownership of the chairs.
you’ve certainly transformed that building/property into something very cool – wow! if you ever have a boat show/gathering let us know; i’ll make the trip just to see all of this in live person. neat place of respite! cheers to you!
Where’s that old ice-a box-a full of ice and Barley pop?
Chairs look great!
Right! Or old soda machine with adult/ regular sodas.
i helped clean our church store room out, it was full of them. wife would only let me take two home.
Every detail, dialed in. The oil and stencils are perfect. The chairs are works of art.
We use to call those Baptist Church Chairs, hard on the butt and teacher went on and on. You could not tear them up, being from Gulfport , Miss. they might have been made by Higgins. Address on City Park Ave. in New Orleans was a huge wood barn of a building that housed Higgins Marine, owned by a son or cousin. I bought a 35 hp Evinrude from them in 1957. Brought it home in a VW Bug, laying on passenger seat folded back to back seat. I was a happy man with my new electric start motor.
