After turning and rough shaping the arm rests the stepped round mortises were drilled into the stiles. The arms were then further shaped and fitted.
This done, the spindles are then marked out and tapered to a 12-13mm square at their base. This square shaft is then rounded.
After rounding the spindles I then drilled the 7 spindle holes in the rear deck of the Elm seat and individually fitted each spindle to a respective hole.
Drilling the crest to accept the tops of the spindles will round out the last of the drilling for the rocker, with the exception of the small holes for pegging the rockers and crest rail. All still on track for a March 1st delivery.
