« Part 18: Natural edge walnut bowl Part 19 of Time lapse Woodworking series Part 20: making a sculpted chair seat »

I’ve been working on a set of dining chairs so I took some time to show how I sculpt some of this chair. The underside of the seat and round over on the legs needed to be sculpted to match the original chair I’ve been commissioned to build.

I use Kutzall brand shaping wheels and grinding burrs for the die grinder. I love there carbide shaping tools, they never wear out and are extremely safe because there are hundreds of little cutting burrs that seem to be very easy to control while removing wood where you want to remove it.

thanks for sharing this video. The sculpting looks great. Those are beautifully smooth transitions from the seat to the legs.
