|Very symmetric - I like that|
|First two chairs drying|
|One leg to go when I ran out of shellac|
Today, I started by sanding with 220 grit paper. I have two types of 220 grit paper - the dark colored wet/dry paper and a light colored aluminum oxide paper. I was a little worried that the latter would leave scratch marks. But they were both OK and I got the sanding done. Not my favorite part of a project.
After brushing off the dust, I got a second coat of shellac on all three chairs. They're currently drying and I hope to get the last coat on tomorrow. I'll follow that up in a day or two with a coat of furniture wax.
I remembered to "sign" my work this time. Not in the same place on each chair - this chair has it on the inside face of a lower side rail.
|Maybe in a few generations, this will be a sought after makers' mark|
