« Part 5: The volume of sanding... Part 6 of My Maloof lowback series Part 7: Armrest blanks »

Its been a while since I last got to work on these. The opening for the backrest wasn’t perfectly square, so I made quite a lot of compound angle test cuts. I forgot to reset the saw, which I realized when I did some other stuff later with the same cabin saw (at this communal workshop type of a place). Some other poor lumberjock is probably now sratching his head as he can’t get his boards to align… sorry…

Bandsawing was easy. Single handed gluing – or more specifically getting in the first clamp while the slippery piece was trying to escape wasn’t.

Next up, the handrests!

I wish I was that far along with the chairs I’m planning to build. I’ve got the templates cut out and I’m waiting for the wood I’m going to make the first one from to dry.
