Quick Carving Tip!

Carvings have absolutely nothing to do with the structural integrity of the chair, but they do stand out as the most visually "loud" elements. As such, I am always very sensitive to the role of the carvings because they give a distinct impression of the quality of the rest of the piece.  Here is just one part that I find adds a great deal of interest and beauty to a volute on a comb back ear.

I alway think about a volute in terms of the negative space, that's where I do my work after all. I think of the shape as a long taper that's been bent to a round shape. It helps me to focus on the evenness of the curves if I think of it as a straight taper first. I do the same for the depth of the carving, keeping a close eye on the stop cut/ side wall in the volute so that it tapers evenly as well. The combo of the two make the carving visually flow.

I really like this carving, it is not easy to make such design so neatly and not everyone can do it. Good post, thank you for sharing it with us

The design of the carving is great. However, I do feel that the carvings add to the chair. This particular carving will definitely enhance the chair. Awesomely done. Thanks for sharing

Hi Peter,
Thanks for sharing your knowledge. I have a question. Do you think it's reasonable to build a Windsor chairs out of kiln dried woods? I've recently moved to western Canada and green oak, ash or maple simply is not available here.
