It has been 98 days since I last worked on these: I got a motorcycle and started riding again. I dont have enough spare time for two hobbies, so this had to wait until the bike was put away for the winter. Since August the onboard computer says I have ridden 21 hours, which is exactly 100% of the discretionary time I have had for myself in the last 98 days.

But now its woodworking again:
First I evened the legs, using a tip from a magazine – the pictures need no further explanation:

The method worked perfectly. I chose the thickness of the plywood based on the leg that needed the most tuning, so that I would cut the minimum necessary length away.

Next I took one of the chairs outside, and straightened the upper parts of the backlegs.

Also did some general rasping around the joints and backlegs, couple of hours in total. Its good to be back…

That’s one good looking chair… It’s going to soon be time to start the other 7 in the set. (big grin)
