It's been a while since I have taken the time to update...stuff happens. In this case. 'stuff' was a two week trip to Orlando for work. (BTW.... YAY!!! Canadian Women's Hockey RULES!!!!!)
So, I finally made it back to the shop and began the next stage for the chairs..(did I mention this is a long drawn out process?)
It's time to start spoke shaving the backs and arms of the latest chairs. I enjoy this step, even if it takes a long time. There is something peaceful about carving with a spokeshave... the whistle the shave makes as it cuts through the wood. A rough band sawn piece emerges into a smooth flowing piece. Curls of what isn't the chair falling to the floor.
It is going to take another eight hours or so to get this just right..... I didn't say this was going to be a long post did I?
Back to the shop...
