And how does he sharpen?
This is your first furniture project?!
Lovely piece made of scraps that are themselves made of scraps. First someone turned "useless" wood bits into framing lumber and then you turned the scraps from that into this fascinating piece of furniture. Excellent proportions, lovely colors, simple elegance and probably tricky as can be to build. Nice work. Got to be a winner.
Those are some lucky friends.
I love it. You know how to have fun. Great workmanship and a great attitude.
Now that's the way to send scraps to the fireplace; very handsome. I guess that's a gas log fire. If it were a wood burning fireplace I think codes and good practice would dictate keeping that wood further from the opening--I think it's 12 inches, but may not remember correctly. Something those of us inspired by this piece need to think about.
Looks like a fine match. If you want to next time you can run a square length of stock past a round over bit on your router table. Turn the piece four times, obviously, and of course leave some untouched on both ends to stabilize the piece. Naturally you're limited by the size of your bit, but maybe a half inch radius would have worked here. But your way worked great--real nice piece.
It may be a subjective judgment, but I agree it's not an attractive chair. It doesn't look too comfy to me either. But I thought the plan and technique PDF was worth a look.
I'm wishing that all of you end next year with all the fingers you start with. Oh, and a new Wood Slicer would be nice--111".
