Thanks Marc for the reply have you by chance watched the Maloof masterclass series. I found it on VHS it’s pretty informative. Like I said I’m sure he is in good hands with you but with you being new to making one and taking from Brock’s take he should also look around for others who have made them (Bill being the one I suggested) to see the difference in the process used by each builder. As he may learn something from each of you and be able to use all of those techniques or see something in one of the other designs that he would like to incorporate. I also think it is very nice that you are donating to the maloofs. I think you may have taken my comment the wrong way also I wasn’t saying you are a inexperienced wood worker with using tools just at having less experience at the sculpted chairs. I would have given the same advice about finishing also minus I would have inserted Charles Neil’s name instead of Bill’s name. By just going on experience your projects look good and you make mistakes and learn from them the guys who have been doing longer have made the same mistakes and more and have little tricks of the trade that they can share. It would be the same for me as a coppersmith I have learned a lot from my elders and from the younger guys that I have been able to make my own and have been able to avoid mistakes by watching and listening to the advice of others not just following the advice of one.
