Default 3-1 High Chair, Rocking Horse and Desk

Day 1:
Transferred the drawings of the main piece (and horse head) onto a piece of 1/4" MDF, to make a template. Instead of having to trace this onto a new board, if I want to make others, I'm making a template of it first. May even use the template to trim route the actual wood I'm making it out of. Rough cut, ready for spindle sander!!

You gotta love templates . I can see where my big horizontal sander and my spindle sander will come in very handy for some of the final shaping

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Hey @N'awlins77 give us a clue on the end product. Too out of context here ya know

Think you're trying to mimic Oliver (GaffBoat).

When everything around you is going to pot, get out in the workshop.
