Continuing in this afternoon. All the joints are cut. Time for rough shaping, glueing & wedging and then final shaping can't wait to finish mine up and start diving into what everyone else was able to accomplish!
Rough shaped time to glue this guy and start sculpting the saddle.
Well after a few minutes of diversion (drilling a new hole in my "dowel plate" and learning that riving walnut isn't as nice as green oak) I had pegs for the legs
The rest of the glue up was fairly uneventful. Pegged & wedged joints really allow you to go light on clamps.
So now it looks like after a quick bite to eat I may be at the fun bit, sculpting the seat.
Had dinner, cut the stool to final height and cleaned it up a bit (extended tenons and such) there are probably better ways to sculpt but I think this will work ok cut in my profile and knock it out. Also my Emmett vise (clone) has been great in this project.
Finish Line! Couldn't resist putting some oil on... Ooooooo smooth. Really happy with how it sits and the seat figure turned out nice. A few things I would change next go around and may change in time, but not anytime soon.
