I've had a couple of minutes to do something other than sharpen stuff this morning. Some was spent putting things away but I also had a little time to spend on the chair seat. The seat is Red Oak so saddling may take some time. Starting with an Adze to get to depth, then scorp to smooth some and finally Travisher and card scraper to finish. This first part is mostly scut work and this old farts arm can only go so long at one time. There will be progress but it will be slow. The good news is I do not plan a deep saddle but I also want to thin the seat's look so the bad is there may be a lot of work with a plane to go.
The legs are close to ready, once the seat blank is ready the chair should go together quickly. I hope so it has been hanging around the shop much too long.
