A recent project to go next to a Bow-arm Morris chair I made for my daughter. It’s QSWO, fumed, and oiled. On this one I wiped on some polyurethane for extra protection.
It was a fun little project. I enjoyed making the keyed through-tenons.

Very nice Tbone,
I like how you laid out all the pieces and then showed the completed project.
What type of oil did you use after it was fumed?

On this one I used PURE tung oil from Woodcraft. I have also used boiled linseed oil in the past and have had varied results. It seems to me like the tung oil is easier to mess with and more consistent.
Thanks for the feedback fellas.

I agree with RExMaKinnon; Nerdy as we are here we newer seem to tire of process-images..
Thanks for sharing!
