A place for me to display some of the varied projects that come out of my shop, as well as to "talk" about some of my experiences working with wood.

Leminster #1 Finished!!!

A few folks have asked for an update on the chair, well here is the first one with a few posed shots, enjoy. this cherry will darken up nicely in the months and years to come.
High View showing seat and through tenon detail

Side view highlighting chamfer on front of seat making a very comfortable chair

Three-quarter front view - nice clean down under look - like a Ken doll.
 A couple of more build shots for those who asked...

Seat Carving - those luthier planes are good for more than just guitars.

The legs with brackets mortised, glued and screwed into leg, ready for trimming.

  1. Congratulations on the first chair Richard! It looks great. Love the action shot with the small LN plane. That looks somewhat familiar except I used one of 2 Boggs shaves.
