at this time I want to share my last job.I just finished to refurbush this chair below,The history of this chair is not clear at family.
My dad passed way few months ago.I found this chair at his shop and picked it to me as a heritage.Only me love woodworking and my sisters did not want the chair.
I found only one.Someone told me this chair was a test when my father starts to work at professional shop and the owner showed him the draw and told him to make one.If can do can work there.
This chair was at my father’s shop for many years (more than forty) but we never talked about it.So I don’t know if the history is real.With my skils I can’t do one chair like this.
I never saw a chair like this on magazines,pictures or in person.It is a light and sturdy chair and it is a clean design too.
This design can be a chair from a very rich era in Brazil (we call it a “Coffee Era”) 200 years ago.
I found the chair without a seat part.So I need to make a new one.I kept all scars and only made the missed part,sanded and coated with lacquer (the original finish when my father did it).
I removed all orange peel using this tip:
Steve Russell’s Orange Peel Eliminator
It was in this condition
See the arc on back (the tiles helps to see)
The seat part is tapered too
The back part is tapered too
I found many nails “on the road” and removed all using a leather punch
This part I made using an old floor board.
I removed all “orange peel” using the tip above (after pictures)
Ready for more forty years
Thanks for attention!
