I have been planking.
The little chairs are done and now have knitted rats sitting in them. Still waiting for that photo.
Time to move on to the table. I’m thinking small card table with cards, ashtray and whisky glasses.
So… having learned my lesson from last time, I’ll start this time with bought-in stripwood, right?
Yeah, like that was ever really going to happen. One three-year-seasoned plumwood branch, a saw and an electric plane is all I need to get started. I cut a reasonably straight piece and started shaving it down.
Then I sawed it almost in half and shaved a bit more off until I had a two-plank log
Soon I had four little planks ready to seal together
Some serious wood glue and clamps were next up. Note that this is not making the top of the table, it’s making the block that table top will be cut from later. I am still considering round or hexagon. Time to decide later.
The Table Begins. With no upholstery, it won’t take as long as the chairs.
