A few months ago I drove back from the city with a car boot / trunk full of sycamore logs. The tree fellers were glad to have someone take it away. I fairly immediately rough turned up a batch of legs and brought them indoors half expecting lots of splitting and/or distortion. This week I took a chance at making this chair using that sycamore (except for the seat which was a well seasoned board).
Another gift for grandson Sam, it has a message burnt in (pyrographed??) under the seat.
We have a few more weeks before the Christmas handover should the legs decide to shrink their way out of the holes.
