Devilish Work

Well I'm glad I took time out to make the chair devil, 'cos it's doing a smashing job. Seriously, if you have need for a round spindle/dowel/handle and no lathe, this could save you a lot of grief. It's not just useful for chair-making.



Anyway the short spindles are more or less done, althought the fit of the tenons to the arm need a little tweaking before it'll come togther properly - as you can see. Still it's looking so-so, at the very least I can make a low back chair now, even if the back and comb is a disaster.



No one's going to take it for anything but handmade though...

    Gosh the chair is a beaut, Alf!

    Signs of being handmade makes it all the better!

    Makes me want to sit in it.

    Take care, Mike

  3. Thank you, gentlemen. 'Course I don't actually have 'til the end of the month 'cos someone's going to have come down with their Swedish Tank to pick it up. No room in the TPTB-mobile.
