Building a Windsor Chair with Greg Kossow

I threatened the guys with posting images every day on the blog and I didn't get to do it yesterday.
They were giving me grief this morning. So here you are immortalized for posterity!

That said they were having way too much fun. Ankle deep in shavings; delicate staves appearing from split chunks of white ash; a delightful array of drawknives, spokeshaves gracing the benches.

They broke down an used the bandsaw this morning to cut out the seat. I think they're making steam tomorrow. Shout if you hear the whistle.

Mark is training Kielan as a service dog so he (Kielan) is allowed in the school and around the buildings at the Fort - so this is the (permitted) exception to the rules about pets at the Fort.

I'll be adding to the slideshow each day. Or nearly every day. I wasn't able to get to the school to take pictures at the end of class but if any of the students have images of completed chairs please send them in and I'll add them to the slide show.
