getting back to chairs…

selecting seat stock… If it doesn’t cleave flat it is leg stock 😉

this is Amur Cork Tree.. this specimen split out very flat…

designing an appropriate shape to suit the material

you can see the scrub plane I made back in @ 1986 in back . it took about half an hour to get this nice and flat on both sides. Now I need to decide to saddle it now or wait until it is dryer…

I have a choice of white ash or white oak for legs.

be well
