I can lastly put a tick subsequent to one thing that’s lengthy been on
my “to do” checklist:
Learn how to build a Welsh stick chair
. With all that’s
happening with my home proper now (I simply began tear-out on
one of many bogs and nonetheless haven’t completed the steps), I
knew it might be years earlier than I might get round to a chair
construct by myself time. So, I invited Kentucky bodger Don Weber
to come back educate me and some buddies on digital camera, which meant I
may do it on firm time.

However as with all plans, the gods laughed. After Don stated sure,
and my buddies – Christopher Schwarz, John Hoffman, Narayan
Nayar and Justin Lieb – picked the week that may work for
their schedules, I acquired known as into two days of unavoidable
conferences throughout stated week. Ah nicely. So whereas I did the truth is get
hands-on, step-by-step instruction in constructing a Welsh stick
chair, I’ve not (but) truly completed constructing one.

the stretchers. The stretchers and spindles are turned, the arm
bow is bent and I’ve acquired the crest rail formed. So there’s

Minihan travisher
for precise work, and am now pining for
one among my very own). And I believe having different people round led to
some discussions and questions we wouldn’t usually be capable of
seize on video on your instruction – the ensuing “Construct a
Welsh Stick Chair” video is the higher for it. So on the final
day of capturing, I commandeered the digital camera for a couple of minutes to
speak about why:
