!C:\Documents and Settings\m050tdb\Desktop\pictures\woodworking pics\100_1594 (Large).JPG!Thank for all the complemeant Tom, Bill, I sculpt the seats partly with a bandsaw before I glue it up and then use a 9” and a 5” grinder with several different of paper to scoop it out. Id like to try a carving atachment one of these days but just haven’t shelled out the money for one yet. the sanding creats A LOT of dust so I try to do it out side..

Wow, again. This comment is to the 8 projects you just posted in a row…you dropped some bombs brother (that is a complement). As a figured wood guy I loved the curly maple and curly walnut used, the execution is equally impressive in all the pieces. Thank you for posting these.

Dayton, I was going to comment on each of your projects but saved it all up for the last post so as not to be redundant. Extraordinary design and craftsmanship. You are indeed a fine craftsman. It was a real pleasure looking at your work and thank you so much for sharing them with us. Welcome to LJs.

it’s beautiful… don’t think I’d want to sit in it though—I’d hate to be the one that made it crash.
