A great day in the shop today. Did my habitual Saturday morning chisel check, sharpen and hone and then settled down to finish the construction of the seat section. This I made entirely out of the air dried Blue Gum and I am getting more and more enamoured with this particular species, it joints crisply, sands reasonable fast and planes beautifully, although there will always be some interlocking grain to mess with one’s kharma! (main reason is I get it really cheaply)
I did the tenon for the for the spring clamp system base part which fits into the seat with wedges as well…it ain’t coming out!
All in all, a lovely day in the shop, the rest of the weekend I shall turn the wheels for the clamps, cut and fit the connector blocks for the two assemblies and and work on the metal carrier bar.
Thanks again Paul, your Sketchup drawing makes the whole project extremely easy to follow and I could not have got this far without it.
