Have a seat, pull up a chair … my chair! I now have a gothic chair that breaks down for flat transport and goes together with just bits of wood (tenon keys). After deliberating for a while over what to do about the 12 mortice holes and how I was going to make them, I finally came up with a solution … the Dremel TrioTool. I LOVE this tool, It does everything necessary to make these woodworking projects — cuts, routs, and sands. You can even do a nice rounded edge for decoration. If you’re thinking about doing some projects and aren’t sure what tools to get, get the Dremel TrioTool — it only cost me $89 by using a 10% discount coupon from the post office (normally $99).
Anyway, enough about power tools … here’s the chair so far:
Things left to do:
- Cut out quatrefoils in the sides of the chairs.
- Make armrests
- Make better tenon keys from oak
- Sand everything
- Stain it
But all in all, not bad for a day’s work! I spent a couple of hours yesterday, plus about five hours today.
