Midnight Woodworking


More pub chairs – day 2

Only a few hours to play today. I pulled a couple of walnut boards off the rack for resawing. I need all of the walnut to be 1/4″ thick for the center lamination piece on all of the chair parts. I started by cutting to length, then planing the boards down on both sides. Next I set up the table saw and band saw to resaw the walnut the same way I did on the oak. With everything planed, I started the glue-up. I managed to use up every clamp I own on just the two leg laminations, so that is it for the night. The rest of the pieces are smaller so they should require far less clamps each…
