Hey folks I have been messing around with an idea for a chair, I made a start by chopping out the mortises and then marking and cutting tenon's.. The paramo plane mentioned a few posts back proved very handy for trimming down the tenon cheeks.. I like making use of these old tools that I buy , rather than just letting them collect dust... Anyhoo here's where I got to... ;)

I cycled off along the canal this evening.. As it was too nice a night to be absorbed into the sofa. Anyhoo, along the way I saw thick seed pods hanging in the Elm scrub that lines the canal banks..

Hey, I'm getting back into the workshop a bit more. Here are a few of my latest creations, three stools first the biggest one has a cherry top with ash legs, the medium sized one has a field maple top with ash legs and the smallest has an oak top with hazel legs. They are all wedged with teak wedges which gives a nice dark line in each joint... Also an elm burr-burl slice for a little cheese board this stuff looks just great, sanded up with a little oil or wax. And a couple of Lyme bowls which I quite enjoyed doing for a bit of a change... :)
