And the two chairs are done! Truthfully they’ve been done for a week. I brought them to the @farmersmarketwarrenton and they were a hit! Looking forward to doing another pop-up soon. What do you all think of the chairs? Can you see the dovetails?

Three step process in making these dovetails. First, the band saw (which was my last post). Next, cutting the perfect edge here. Lastly, I will chisel to clean it all up. What do you think?

I’ve been working on building the perfect angled chair. Here’s a throwback from a few years ago when I was trying to do the same thing for a bench. Any guess on what the perfect angle is?

WOOD SHOP TIP: If you’re sending all four sides through the jointer, do the two cross-grain sides first. Then for the other two sides, going with the grain will remove any blowout. Make sense? What do you think?
