    Solo Chair

    OK I'm finally getting some time to make the last of the three chairs for the Tightwire act.

    I have some wood left over from the first two chairs but I need more wood, so I'm breaking down long boards and getting them from rough lumber into usable pieces.

    This is all Beech wood.

    First I cut the pieces to a rough length, then I jointed the face of each board flat, next I used my track saw to give me one straight edge.









    I know that the edge is not exactly square to the face that I jointed but for running it through the tablesaw it will be close enough.



    Next I ran the boards through the tablesaw to cut off the wain edge and then flipped them end for end so that I ran the tracksaw edge through the table saw to make sure I have a face that is jointed flat with two edges that are square to that face.

    I'll spark up the thickness planer tomorrow and plane them then cut them up into the final sizes etc.

    I need to get this done and done soon, I did about six hours in the shop today, after getting my stitches out and the doctor told me not to work for another week, yeah, like that was going to happen, but I figure six hours back at it will be enough for today, besides that thickness planer is heavy and noisy so I'll wait until tomorrow.

    Cheers!

    Interesting. There was a post on the Amherst, NH Facebook page the other day. Someone was asking where they could have those chairs made.

    Not much, I'm a survivor of skin cancer, and now when the docs see any strange looking freckle they call it a tumor and get of the sharp knives to have at it, just had a couple removed, and now I'm back at work!

    Does anybody know of a good carpenter who could make chairs out of wood like these?

    Kristi Parker I know a woodworker who lives here in Amherst. PM me and I'll give you his contact info. I bet these will be for a balancing/juggling act, right?
