A rustic Cedar and Pine chair we made for a craft fair display. The seat back was carved into the uppermost log, which was the most challenging part of the project. Made with all 2” round mortis and tennon. Finished with poly, and beaten for 14 weeks at the Grass Valley, California, Thursday Night Market. Thanks for looking.

Beautiful! How do you sand and finish those logs?

Thanks alot for the compliments. We do the majority of the sanding with a dewalt palm sander, some areas we use a dremel to get into, some hand. The finish is just wipe on poly, goes on easy, this is only 3 coats.
