Carved Knuckles

I have struggled to carve like I really want to or how I see it in my head. I do think that I have become more detailed in my carvings but would like to be better. In a future post I will show steps on how I am carving the knuckles on my chairs. It's been kind of the most difficult part to get right on my chairs. I really think it adds a unique feature on a Windsor. You can just sit in the chair and rub your hands over the details of the knuckles and it's very relaxing. Without even looking you can feel the faucets left by the carving chisels and it just takes you to a place of less worry. Maybe thats why they are called "Worry Knuckles".
