In this episode, we finesse the connecting tenon to the mortise joint of the seat, to the posts. This critical juncture relies on a well-fitting connection. The process might seem a little tedious, but it is so well worth it just for the feeling of satisfaction. Following that, we have the process of carving the seat scallop and hollow, so we show how this is done purely with the traditional methods using traditional hand tools. This seat becomes a kind of three-dimensional hub for all the connecting parts. From here on you start to see the chair come together as a whole.
