I want a pony!

what I really wanted was a horse
but there just isn't space in the garage

last time I did one of these chairs I clearly recall
how much fun it is trying to do draw knife and spokeshave work with a bench vice

so I borrowed a page from an antique Schwarz magazine

made some shavings

checked for wind

created piles

and made more shavings

this is how you know if you got it right

and there it is
twenty hours from slab to tool

another couple for handles

I'm ready for those chairs!
