Rocking Chair Episode 9 KF

This is an episode in a paid series. Want to watch it? You just need to sign up as a paid member and you can enjoy this video and many other videos we think you will love.

The various elements of the seat become very apparent in this episode. You see Paul establish the angles to the sides of the seat and then how to cut the seat into three with bevelled cuts from front to back. Paul will also show how we establish the variable thickness to the back support rails ready for shaping them, and how we scribe the curves to each side of the back posts, aligning the shaping with the slats. At the end, you will see Paul hand shape these rails using hand tool methods.

    Why does he layed the plane on the side, at the end…?
    What’s the subliminal message that Paul is trying to send…?

    Perhaps to show the first one was a scrub plane , the other his smoothing plane?

    Good to see you using the bow saw. I think its the first time that I have seen you using it having seen you make one several years ago.

    Am I the only one who thought “you have spent all that time making the seat look lovely, and now you’re just going to cut it up!” :0)

    I am still confused about how the seat base is going to come back together and how it’ll allow the seat to expand and contract. I am hoping it’ll become clearer next week.

    I am enjoying the series so far. Love the idea of laminating the pieces for the bends; I would love to see a close up just to see how obvious the laminations are.

    @for68: no, you are not the only one. I’m eagerly waiting for the next episodes to understand the reason(s) for cutting the beautiful seat and to see how it will be assembled.
