Here is the final video in the Perch series. Thanks for your patience and keep sending me the photos of the perches you've made!
Last week, I had a great time working with Elia Bizzarri. He is a talented chairmaker and we had a fine time comparing notes. I am looking forward to the class that we are teaching at Arrowmont in March. There are a few spots open for the class (including potential scholarship positions) so check it out or spread the word.
The perch is a bit awkward to hold steady at this point in the process. Usually I use a combination of wrestling holds and clamps. To get clear shots of the cutting, I had to use less steadying force, so please forgive the shaky action.
