...but not quite.
Nothing funny happened to me today, so I figured I'd post some pics I took Sunday.
If you've ever wondered what I do for fun while I'm waiting for my Enzyte to arrive in the mail, wonder no more. I turn firewood into things you sit on. Here's one I have almost finished:
The back bow and spindles are split out of an oak log, the seat is pine and the legs are turned from maple that I dig out of the wood pile. Here's a few more pics:
Finished spindles. These are carved by hand, and they suck the life out of you. Nine more to go. Ugh.
Here's one in progress, along side of the tools you use to make them:
This is a bending form for the back. You steam the straight piece of oak for a half hour, then wrap it around this form. You have 30 seconds to take it out of the steamer and wrap it around the form before it hardens again.
Here's one all done:
OK. Class is over. Back to your regularly scheduled blog.
