This is quite an unusual episode showing some of Paul’s equally unusual design methods, possibly some things you have never seen before or elsewhere. Taking the angular rectangular components to create the organic shapes, Paul walks you through the steps carefully using the techniques he has developed for his specific rocking chairs. Paul is working almost exclusively with hand tools to show what and how things can be done. The tools he uses are very ordinary, unspecial, mostly vintage, and yet they seem to fit the work so perfectly. The nice thing is that modern versions work so well too. Enjoy!

    I was baffled by the opening sequence with screw on chair legs and then realized it was April Fool’s eve. Good one!

    Fortunately Julia reminded me it was April Fool. I could not believe that a master woodworker would buy an armchair from Ikea.

    I noticed the rag in a can oiler Paul uses towards the end of this episode looks to be something one piece rather than a rolled up rag. Is this an improvement?

      Paul says:
      On some of my rag in a cans I add a piece of fabric by tucking it in around the edge.
