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

I spent the afternoon in the shed working on my chair . Sometimes I draw some ideas for rustic furniture but in general the timber dictates what it should be, the more buckled and cupped the better . No straight lines or plans to follow, the only requirement is that it pleases the eye. Here is the top of the backrest, I spent most of the afternoon shaping this, so that this would flow around the top of the back legs, I rounded the ends to soften the top, this is where the chair will be handled so I wanted it to be tactile . What do you guy's think ? :)
