Here’s an exercise to perfect your round joinery skills. The author uses his experience of having built more than 1,500 to guide you through every step: choosing the right materials, the differences between traditional and hybrid joints, making the seat frame, drying the rungs and legs properly and turning them, and cutting good tenons. He details how to drill the legs and assemble the undercarriage and attach the seat frame. There’s also information on how to weave a bark seat.
