I used to use sanding disks on the angle grinder to make hollows, dusty work. Now I have an arbortech wood grinder blade, faster, less fine dust.
There’s also a Croatian product you might be interested in. Roto rasp.

The chair is coming along nicely.

Looking good Andy! I think only a woodworker can really appreciate what you are doing.

How did you fit the tenons into the mortises for the back? Just keep checking until you got the right fit or did you mark them somehow first to get close and then tweak them?

MMM….. now that was a while back Brett. My seat ended up smaller than anticipated so I worked out the fixed width by first making the top curved rail and holding the feet apart while cramped, at the same measurement. Then I presented the seat to the legs and marked where they hit the seat. I took more out of the outside of the join in the leg than the inside to provide more meat in the seat. Sort of similar to what Sam maloof does I think but not exactly.
Getting too long to read. Hope this gets you thinking. Kids are crying….got a go!

alright! cutting vs. sanding. It looks like it took some physical effort. You do well with that Spoke Shave, and the card scraper. I’m guessing the chair frame got in the way with the larger tool?

I’m thinking this is healthier, and easier cleanup?

hey we celebrate the most well known woodworker this weekend. We all are in good company!

:-)

I think George is smiling on you !

Speaking of big cutters, my CRAPSMAN Craftsman gas chain saw just does not want to work. Cutting down volunter trees grown too near my house. Bought a worx 18” electric chain saw w/15 amp motor. rated 4.5 stars. Going to do some basic woodworking today! I hope. :-)

One thing about an electric chain saw Doc Tom is it will always start. Grunty too.
