I really like it. How did you do the legs. Drawknife, spokeshave, or both? Great job!

Tom I used a draw knife 3 times.After cutting the trees I used a big drawknife to peel the bark, then let them dry for a few months.Then I had to lightly peel them again to remove the dark dried layer that was on the outside.Then I used a drawknife again to size the tenons.

Thanks for the response Dave. I’m new to using a drawknife. I’ve made a few encouraging practice cuts with mine but really look forward to trying to achieve a little of the expertise you demonstrate. Unfortunately that’s going to get delayed a bit with some pending home repairs I have to get done before the cold winds begin to blow again.

Yes, I like this too. It’s simple but very nice wood and I love the rustic expression.
