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
