Back in the Saddle
I've never bothered to build a long steambox, so I simply bend the long arm one half at a time. I let the first side sit for about a week before bending the other. I am very pleased with the quality of this red oak.
Recently, I finished these two Birdcage armchairs. I'll take some detail shots next.
For a simple break after these two complex chairs, I built this walnut stool. I am hoping to start producing more of these.
They have just the right balance of fun to make, quick, and a satisfying conclusion.
It seems that Lily is having a tougher summer than usual, she broke a blood vessel in her ear and is stuck in the "space dog" mode. I've never seen her so bummed.
But Sue is thriving here in Massachusetts, we've been enjoying all the trails and scenic beauty of our new region, not to mention the raspberry patch!
