7 days ago i was splitting a red oak log with a froe. Today i am driving home with a beautiful rocking chair that ill enjoy for the rest of my life. It was a great week to say the least. Thanks @eliabizzarri !
Day 6 at @eliabizzarri ‘s hand tool woodworking class! My continuous arm Windsor rocker is starting to look like a real chair! One more day to finish it up tomorrow and then Im headed home to enjoy my new rocker!
Day #5 chez @eliabizzarri ! Starting to look like a real Windsor rocking chair! Legs glued in a trimmed. Rocker slots cleaned up, seat cleaned up and scraped. Oh, and lunch today: twice-baked potatoes and broccoli and cheese!
A great day #4 chez @eliabizzarri building my Windsor rocking chair! Finished carving the seat top and part of the bottom, fit the legs and glued in their stretchers and cut the slots for the rockers! Excellent enchiladas for lunch but i was too hungry and forgot to take a pic!!
It’s on y’all! See ya in less than two weeks! Remember, if you’re camping at my house on lundi gras for Faquetaigue, the free shuttle runs between the campground and the Holiday every hour from 6pm-Midnight!
Day three building the Windsor chair chez @eliabizzarri : drilled and reamed the holes for the legs and arm braces and fit them, then placed them in the kiln. Spent the rest of the day starting to carve the seat. Gettin there! Lunch was amazing shrimp and grits with collard greens... mmmmmmm
Day two of making my very own Continuous Arm Windsor rocking chair! Today we split logs to make the continuous arm back, shaped them, steamed them and bent them, and started on the seats. Meanwhile, the spindles have all been placed in the kiln to dry until thursday. Woohoo! Oh, and lunch was amazing again today! @eliabizzarri
