Just finished day 2 of the rocking chair class with Peter. Got a slow start, managing to get stuck in a ditch before we even started. But Pete picked me up, arranged for a tow truck and we were off and running.
Spindles are drying, comb back carved and bent, arm bent, seat carved, so we're back on schedule. As it should be; it's my second time around with Pete. Amazing how much one forgets because he thinks he'll remember. I'm relearning much, and have the added benefit of observing Pete working on his signature rod-backs.
So here we go on day 3, turning with a special emphasis on the skew, my favorite subject.
