The top part will be cut off. That was there to hold the legs as you worked on them. I wish I had had the presence of mind to create a jig to have kept my lines straighter, but there will be a next time. These are all crafted by my two little hands with a file and sand paper. This was a great learning experience and with practice I hope to get better and better as time goes on because I found it fun and want to do more, more I say. I am thinking, tables, chairs, beds, stools, OH MY!!!
Til next time, L J
Next week you will see how the bench will go together.
OK, last nite the weather allowed us to meet. We are making a cushioned bench. One person in our group isnt going to put in the cushion. She is going to use the bench as a plant stand instead. I thought that was a nifty idea. The legs will be hand carved. We have a wood carver in our midst and she does remarkable work and she designed a bench for us.Look Ma no lathe!!! All legs are all supposed to look identical... HA!!! I will keep you posted as to how I do, lol... Wish me luck, I am going to need it...
