Been out of the shop for a while, seems like forever with crazy work schedules and the other stuff that seems to take time away. I decided that it was time to clear out the cob webs and fire some tools up. For a while, I have been looking at spectator chairs for my basement pool room and I figured that would be a good project to get back into the shop.
I started with Popular to build a prototype, the final chairs will be quarter sawn white oak and I plan on trying my luck with fuming to get that aged look. I am just about done with the tooling, just need to finish fitting the chair arms to the back supports. I will be in setting the back of the arm into the upright and allowing the cut out to sit on the front post. once complete I will add some cloud lift corbels under the arm for added support.
once all that is done, I will start on the sanding, finish and top coat.
