My First Two Chairs
This is a bit of a teaser, because,so far, I'm not sure if any members here are at a level to be able to build something like this. I really don't want to come across as an elitist, but a lot of the responses seem to say "Oh, I could never do that." Still, I hope I am encouraging & not discouraging any one to aspire to a higher level of skill then then they have now. Lets face it, I am 75 now & have spent the greater part of my working life in cabinet shops & building furniture. I am bound to have picked up some skills that I would be glad to pass on to others.
Some of you have said or implied that you wish you could build furniture but you don't have enough tools or ........ Take a look at Youtube videos on green wood furniture making. It doesn't require a large tool investment. The price of wood can be as low as free. You don't need a designated shop. People will pay you for what you can make. Think about it
As I said in my title, these 2 chairs are the first that I made. But, I did start out with a lot of acquired skills and I had the chair I was copying right in front of me. When I delivered those 2 chairs, the husband wasn't home. When he did come in, the chairs were sitting around the table with the originals. He looked around a bit & then asked'which ones are the new ones.
