Well here she is in all her glory. LOL. I think I have opted to just leave it natural for now. It seems to be darkening and giving itself a nice patina. I don’t want it to grey so I may try to apply something on it. I read in Fine Woodworking that it’s okay to apply pure tung oil to help protect it but I’m not sure how much that would help keep the color. The arms were the last thing and I got to use the bandsaw to cut the arch and the scoop on the front. The sides are shaped by hand by me and my girlfriend. We each carved a side. I realize that some joints could be tighter and there is room for improvement. I somewhat rushed on some of the process.
This project was fun to build and it gave us time together. I’m looking forward to our next “hobby” project. I think it’s going to be a carved screen door. I also need to finish the fence and have some commissioned work to attend to as well. I’m seemingly busy, now wheres the money. LOL.
As always I welcome constructive criticism, positive or negative.
