Shaving the best for last…

Working down a post for the rocking chair.  This will be one of the back posts.


And this is what a good day in the shop boils down to; a pile of wood shavings.


The work that goes into one of these chairs is hard but utterly enjoyable.  It’s how I imagine a sculptor must feel when working with their medium, rather than a pile of scrap clay, I end up with a pile of mulch.  You start with a tree and take away everything that isn’t furniture.  All there is to it, right?
