It Takes A While
Out in the shed at the weekend for few hours here, and an odd evening there , that's how my pastime works.
No point rushing with sharp tools, speed is not required, slow and steady wins the race. So with some ash poles that I peeled and left to dry out for over a year, and some seasoned cherry along with some ideas and a couple of cardboard templates. Then a little sawing, a lot of scooping out and loads of shaving's, then a bit of pondering a bit more scooping along with more shaving's.
Boring some holes for the legs and back supports, cutting wedges and after endless sanding a little dry run a tweak and a little more spoke shave work . A little chin rubbing then its time for gluing up, solving any problems as they crop up, a final sand along with a few coats of wax and then we get to this :)
