I've started a new chair, kinda, maybe, details to be worked out. I think the seat will be Red Oak, the legs will be either Red Oak or Honey Locust and the back spindles who knows, I'll make that decision when I get there.
I split some Honey Locust leg blanks and I'm in the process of making them kinda look like chair legs. Before I go too far I'll also split out some Red Oak leg blanks to see which I like better.
BTW, I don't know if anyone else feels this way but Honey Locust is an absolute miserable wood to work. It is very hard and brittle but if you can get to the finished product it can be very attractive.
I've been looking at photos of some early stick chairs and for some time I've wanted to make a little more true to the early chairs chair. We will see how it goes, it may be a keeper but just as likely firewood.
MsBubba had her best BDay ever, at least as she tells me. Then the next day we both hit a wall. I've got a upper respiratory allergy thing going and then this afternoon went into AFib. MsBubba's BP went through the roof so not much is getting done in Casa Chaos other than two Old Farts feeling sorry for themselves and a little time on the shave horse.
