Hello to all of you.
Here is part of my latest project. Made out of walnut this is chair number 1 of 4 . I have to give credit to my friend Scott Morrison for showing me how to do it on is 2 DVD set lesson plan as well as the templates I ordered from him, and everything he says came to be true, they sit well it is amazing. Thank you Scott your a master teacher.
I used an oil resin wax combined together , hand rub with a rag for the first coat, and two more coats using 000000 grit steel wool 24 hours appart.
I have to admit it took some elbow grease as well but the result says everything not to forget that walnut as the property to make you feel good.
One day, I will try to make the dinning table to complete this adventure. A nice day to all of you, and keep on making saw dust.

Very cool Andrek. That’s way more flowing curves than I care to imagine. Well done.

Very nice! I like the walnut, and those smooth, flowing lines. Can’t wait to see the table that goes along with these!
