Chair assembly

Day 3 was spent smoothing all the dried components with spokeshaves, scrapers and Abranet sanding pads, then assembling the back panels then the two side panels for each chair. Here’s  a photo taken on the morning of day 4.

3 panels assembled for each chair

Day 4 was spent drilling the remaining holes in the side panels for final assembly, then trimming the tops of the legs, leveling the bottoms and applying a coat of oil. Rhys’s cross rail was reluctant to be squeezed so we used a clamp to help it, rather than thump it. This worked nicely.

Today will be spent weaving the seats.
