    Glued up

    I used epoxy to glue the back assembly. Because the spindle orientation is intentional, I wanted to prevent them from spinning. I am glad I used epoxy because it took a while to get everything oriented and clamped. It was very awkward to orient pipe clamps to hold the crest and the seat simultaneously. If I do this again, I will consider gluing blocks onto the bottom just to be able to pull it tight.

    The only thing left is to shape the 'horns'. I originally intended to try my hand at a false miter, but I think I may just opt for a simpler, blended transition...

    Walnut Chair Completed

    I finished this yesterday. Waterlox Original Sealer Finish.

    The bow and posts are walnut, but from the sap part of a slab. Spindles are red oak.

    False start on False miter

    I was originally going to make the post/bow joint a false miter. But as I was shaping it, I decided to leave it as is. I suspect the FM would look better with a painted joint where you can hide the actual joint and camouflage the end grain of the bow.

    Lot of thought in that design. I'm surprised at how formal it looks. Think it deserves a new and trade marked name.
    Sure to be succesful.

    Yes, maybe Prashun Patel's Aristocratic Chair.
