I bought plans and DVD from Charles Brock, it was a Christmas gift from my wife. Not having much woodworking experience and almost no furniture experience I have been slow to start this project. After watching the DVD several time it was time to start this.

The seat is the first thing to build and start carving on.

Got the front legs fitted to the seat.

I want to give a very large Thank You to Charles Brock.

Great job on the seat carving! I’ll be following along as well.

Chairs are a hard place to start furniture making, this seat looks like a great start!

You picked a challenging project for someone with limited experience but it seems like you have made a good start. Hand in there, a lot of sanding ahead. I have made several of these and they can be addictive. I’m no expert but if I can answer any Q’s drop me a line

I don’t have a lath so this is how I have to round the front legs.
