Diary of a Scottish woodcrafter. Lover of nature and wild places!!

I was in the shed today for a few hour's planing and smoothing out parts for the chair I'm building. One half of the back rest has a split in it, so after a bit of pondering whether or not to find something else. I decided to make some big staples and strengthen it up, so I bent some wire in the vice just using the hammer. Then I tapped the staple and drilled small pilot holes in the dimples before driving them home. Now the split looks like it has been stitched, this gives this chair an unusual quirk :)
