« Part 6: Backrest Part 7 of My Maloof lowback series Part 8: Finally starting to take shape »

I’m not sure if this little progress even warrants a blog post, but still:

Not having a bandsaw nor enough clamps, I’m doing (also) this bit at this communal workshop. And since I can’t hog all the clamps to myself, I’m doing the sawing and gluing one by one; when I pick up the previous one, I saw and glue a new one. Since the workshop is open after “normal business hours” only on Mondays and Thursdays, it takes some weeks (as I also have to get the stars aligned for the logistics; typically I take the train to work, but every once in a while I have to take my car – if that happens to be a Monday or a Thursday, I get one armrest blank done!)

My original target schedule (in December…) was to be ready for final shaping when my summer vacation starts; that will be the second week of July. It will be a close call…

P.S. Good thing I took this photo, as I just now realized that the curve for the one on the left has to be drawn “the other way around”, to get the grain and shape flow together and not against each other!

Slow and steady ends up with a finished project!
