    If you want it in the wood, imho, I would wipe on and wipe off a danish oil.

    Whatever you do, sand up to 600 - even 1000 if you have access to it. It Burnishes the wood, almost mildly sealing...

    We are about to start ours too. Misery loves company.

    I totally agree, Ken! It can do a lot of things that the roughing gouge, spindle gouge, and parting tool can do. And there's something so satisfying about the way it cuts. So crisp and smooth. ...

    David, Yes it is. The Windsor design has been scrutinized deeply by so many people. Rake, splay, spindle angles, seat cant, are all pretty well understood.

    Ready for finishing

    I had a chance to wedge and assemble the chair this morning. There isn't a lot of glue used here. Most of the tenons are wedged. I've always pre-sawn the kerf when making wedged tenons in the...

    Fitting the spindles

    I got a chance to fit the spindles today. I have the Veritas 'pencil sharpeners' to do the tenons. However, I find that it's easier to to do them at the lathe.

    I am toying with the idea of...

    Spindles and crest

    Buchanan drawknives the spindles at his shave horse. I wanted to get some practice using the skew at the lathe, so I turned mine. I haven't tamed my skew yet, so I will end up smoothing these with...
