I will be making a video soon of the completion of the perch, but this week I have Elia Bizzarri of Handtool Woodworking visiting and helping me out in the shop.
Here is Elia shaving out some spindles, he's smiling because he just made a joke about me being short, I bet Sam Maloof doesn't have to put up with this! (I know, I'm not Sam)
I'm enjoying the hard working assistance and company in the shop, plus the opportunity to discuss the fine details of technique and design with another chairmaker. We should get a lot done this week (Elia already roughed 60 legs in a day), and hopefully find the time to finish the perch series.
