Flushing up the leg and starting to define the shape of the seat more

Starting to look a bit more like a seat-

Haunch for the rear leg cut, starting to mark out the joinery for the real legs-

Pretty rough right now but it'll all get shaped in nice and smooth later down the line-

Next, cut some more joinery in the front legs, shape them up and glue em in.

Color me extremely jealous. I'd love to have the skills to craft something from nothing like that.

Joints on top of joints-

It'll all get flushed up soon-

The back rails and stretcher are done. The rails were easy but the stretcher, which is the smallest piece of wood in the whole chair, took two days.

Clamps are there just to keep everything tight and lined up for test fitting-

Damn Dude! I love your draw knife. Mine is huge in comparison. I love to see this level of dedication. One of my heroes is George Nakashima. I work now on the timber level, not the furniture level. Oh and am learning how to plaster very quickly!

Please, please, please keep updating this thread!

Bill

Well the chair is finished now. I haven't kept up with the pictures as much as I should've the past few days. It was crunch time and I wasn't taking brakes. Don't have any pictures of it finished yet but I will soon.

Here it is all clamped up for real this time, bunch of things becoming one thing-

Well I am wasn't happy with how the finish came out on the chair so I now in the process of sanding it down and refinishing it. So, still no pictures.

But here is a project the my girlfriend and I have been talking about for while. One old surveying tripod + one extra large ceramic socket stripped out of an old floor lamp + a old giant 300W GE Bulb = One pretty cool floor lamp.

Actually came together really easily. The fixture I stripped the socket and wiring from while ugly was very well built and in great shape for its age. The casting at the top of the tripod is aluminum so it was also easy to modify.

That is impressive. Have you sold any of your work yet? I'd love to save up and get a custom bar height table and chairs from you. Nothing too crazy, but stylish and unique.
