Changes For The Better

I decided to change the seat and backrest on the chair as I couldn't find the elm that I needed . Some old dusty oak at the bottom of my wood pile in the shed turned out to be the answer . After ripping down the oak I had two boards just less than 1" thick this would give me a kind of book matched look . Then the boards had to be edged by hand so that the centre line had no gaps. So here it is, only the final sanding and waxing still to do. I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out :)

  1. I can see a bear's face in the top half of the chair back!

    Nice one.
