Chair Class Day 3

 Now that he's slept a little he's back at working the seat. Here he's shaping the underside of the seat with the drawknife.
 Then moved onto the spokeshave and he did a great job working through the difficulties of the poplar seat.
 Here he began assembling the undercarriage. He turned all his own stretchers and they all came out perfect. I think he's liking the lathe.
Here is the undercarriage all glued up and legs trimmed. Byron has done a amazing job so far and everything should be ready to to put into the chair tomorrow. I am extremely pleased with how well he's done from never doing any kind of woodworking before. He's a natural.
