I had a feeling I was going to have difficulty blogging during class.
Here are a few of the high points from my Windsor Chair Class at Port Townsend School of Woodworking.
Splitting the white oak spindles.
Using the draw knife to shape.
More shaping of the spindles.
Starting to look like a spindle.
Steam bending the back bow.
Rough seat drilled and reamed.
Going cave man on the seat.
More seat carving.
Using the travisher to get close to the final shape.
Carving the under side of the seat with a draw knife.
Making the tenons on the bow
Holes drilled for the bow and inserted.
Trimming the feet.
Drilling for the spindles.
More work on those damn spindles.
Scraping to final surface.
Leveling the feet.
White oak bow.
Back bow sitting on the spindle deck.
My not so great gutter and I see a spot I missed.
What my gutter should look like (Peter’s).
And final shot.
