« Part 9: Re cycled Jarrah stool Part 10 of Furniture series Part 11: Table top 1500mm x1500mm Part 1 »

I am a day behind with the progress postings but anyway here we go

I used the bandsaw to cut the curves, a sanding disk to do the bits I couldnt reach with the bandsaw then the and Oscillating sander to smooth out everything.

Due to the seat being a bit on the thin side I thought it best to add some stiffening, just in case somebody decides to stand on it, not that it would break but hey why take the chance.

I didnt take any pictures of the actual rough shaping.

Once I had that done I used the same round over bit used for the joints to do the again accessable areas of the top of the seat and then the legs..

Tiding again the non accesable areas with the Osc sander freehand.

Then a few hours sanding from 80 Grit finishing up with 320 Grit.

The light was again beating me so I will continue tomorrow.

A couple of sanding finish shots.

I have a few gap lines showing so I may have to do some filling before contuining.

Its getting there !!

-- Regards Robert
