Bent green Willow branches from our farm and pine branches salvaged from the forest floor make this chair. Most log furniture is pretty uncomfortable, but this is the nicest sitting chair I’ve made to date. I’m also surprised at how strong it is. The willows are just nailed on with paneling nails. Those gremlins would be the grand kids. The branches will dry to a purple color.
I found the book “Making Gypsy Willow Furniture” by Bim Willow to be a great help. The book is largely photos so those who learn visually, like me, will love it.
