“Before” by rhoing

“Before”

Note the bubbling of the finish at the upper-left. There is a lot of it on the seats, too. Clare has quite a bit of work ahead of her to strip two of these.

What fascinates me most about the construction of this chair is that back piece at the top. It's four boards glued together so it could be cut with the desired amount of curvature. Fortunately, those seams are still sound! Turned spindles, turned legs, and not just vertical pegs supporting the back. And yet, just something Grandpa “threw together” with scrap wood in his shop 60 years ago…
