    Thank you Richard.

    What a lovely piece of furniture. Those corbals really make it that bit more special. Can’t wait to see it fully upholstered. A piece that will last for generations.

    Oh, and don’t forget to sign it in some way somewhere, so a hundred and fifty years down the line when someone is still admiring it they will know who the master craftsman was who made it.

    Thanks Paul. It’s pine, not oak, so we’ll see how well it weathers. It should outlast me, I would think.

    I’m not actually a fan of signing my work. I’m not sure why. Something to do with nonchalance maybe. I might sign something that was made for someone else, but I’m not at that point just yet.

    ‘Master craftsman’? Steady on! lol

    Looks fantastic
    As an architect myself love the reference to Frank Lloyd Wright!!

    Thanks Orestes. I’ve always been a fan of FLW, Greene and Greene, and the American Arts and Crafts movement in general.

    It’s difficult to find the time to finish the settle off because I’ve been so busy with other projects and my workshop is getting pretty cold these days. I’ll be sure to post a photo when I do though.
