The final pieces came together, but as usual I feel the final stages of my projects have the most frustration and mistakes probably due to impatience. Nevertheless, I think starting out with a pile of off-cuts a month ago, and now having a small stool is a positive thing.
Firsts for this project:
Angled compound joinery
When laminating wood, take care in having a consistent grain orientation
Go slower with spongy-pine
Depends on the wood, but be generous in width of kerfs for wood
Study up on layout tips for angled compound joinery
After this project, I find myself interested in working my way up to a full sized chair, hmmmmmm.
