There are two ways to see a piece; one with your eyes and one with your hands...
This chair has tested my limits of vision in both senses, a curve feels right but looks odd, and another is visually perfect but has a tactile bulge.
I sit now, astride the piece, atop my saw bench. All the pressure is off the legs, but the joinery is tight. I can work all the parts as one or separately.
This is sweeping work, from simple form, to overall shape, past little details, I see now only the lines, the connections, transitions, breaks, the piece becomes.
