    Carve Chair Seat With the Tablesaw

    I saw this on another forum and thought it worth sharing, It looks like it would be a fast and easy way to make a chair seat. Has anyone here tried this method?

    I prefer the meathod that Sam Maloof showed us when I took his class. This film while not done by Sam does show the method.

    Interesting technique. I am not sure if I like the end result though. It comes out too perfect.

    How do people think up this stuff?! Pretty amazing to me. As for too perfect, that did cross my mind, but you could take care of that with sanding.

    Very creative. It gives you a basic shape to either use as is or transform with further hand/machine work if desired. I would sure give it a try.

    Well speaking for myself, if I was going to sculpt a seat pan I would try this method because I don't think I have the ability to do a really good job strictly by hand. As far as too perfect, I thought we all strive for the most perfection that we can achieve? I wonder Like Paul said "How does someone come up with these ideas"
