Captains Chairs in Ash

Captains Chairs in Ash

I have finished both chairs in time to take them down to the local industrial estate at the end of Sunday to photograph. The weather is clear, so the light is good. There will be a frost in the night but the photographer in me doesn’t care. The two men raiding the skips and the builder returning things to his works all compliment me on the chairs. A good feeling. Here is one of the pics.

Scraping Seat

Scraping Seat

It is autumn and the sun is shining . I am finishing the second of a pair of chairs. I have sanded to 220 grit and now am scraping the seat to perfect the carving, before going over the whole chair at 400 grit and oiling some time this weekend. I might have finished today but I went off to Pepperbox Hill while the sun is out. I can work through the weekend in the rain.
