2021.08.08 - More Glastonbury Chairs

I was commissioned to make two Glastonbury Chairs by re-enactor friends. I haven't recorded the build process as I've done that already, so here are the results.

The parts awaiting a final sanding.

But first, a test. The chair. on the left looks a little skewed but that is distortion from the camera, not the chair itself.

Seen from this angle, there is no distortion.

I made these slightly differently from previous chairs in that all the edges of the frame pieces were rounded over with a router bit to remove the corners the wood. Pine isoprene to splitting along sharp edges like this and the round over helps to prevent this from happening.

The result is pretty good and I think the recipient's will be pleased.
