The Journey to extreme chair making begins as Jalen chooses his wood and lays it out in anticipation.

in preparation for an ambitious project and wanting to really know what he was doing jalen chose to make the more crucial parts of the chair out of poplar.

The actual techniques and process will be covered with the start of the real chair.

Hey it’s great to see you share this with us. I look forward to seeing more.

The thing that impresses me the most, is the time you take with the kids. The fact they are turing out great projects is just a bonus;)

Thanks for you kind words. The support pros like you that they look up to means more than you will ever know. I do feel privileged that all four of my kids like to work in the shop. We like to challenge ourselves and lean something new on every project. Since we are all new at this that is easy to do.

BTW I was looking through some pictures and I thought you might like this one. Notice the Hat. They are a big hit with the kids.

Great to be working with the kids in the shop. They will all remember those days fondly after they become adults.
