These two Continuous Arm Chairs are finished now, but for oiling. They are gifts from a Grandfather to his two grandchildren. Although they are a pair I wanted there to be some difference between the two and so I left sapwood on the outer edges of one and ran a line of it down the centre of the other. A kind of Windsor racing stripe! They are for young kids after all and a little individuality never hurt anyone.
And now that the chairs are finished I'm burning the midnight oil to get three, ( yes 3 ) Continuous Arm Rocking Chairs finished before Xmas too. One has to go to Launceston ( Tasmania for my overseas friends ) too, so that is the priority chair at present.
I may even take it over on the ferry myself!
Then there's a little Elm Milking Stool I've made for a local fellow who kindly donated some axes to me from his late fathers collection.
It was a fun little project, as it's all made on the lathe and I think a few may end up in the shop next year as a result.
An extra tall barstool for a graphic designer rounds out the chairs for this month, so there's plenty going on. Tomorrow its back to the house again and a trip to the city too, so I'm expecting a few late nights for the next few weeks!
