The never ending task of revision has been present for a few weeks now..

And i decided to have a break from it all on monday and came up with this..

http://www.yorkshirefurniture.co.uk/stool2.JPG

In case you cant tell, it's supposed to be a footstool or something to sit a teddy on :roll:

Not much to gloat about, but the weaving hasn't come out too bad...It was my first time doing it so i was unsure of the results at first..

Simple mortice and tenon joinery with a wax finish (to be applied)

Made from an old beam that got ripped out of a house...

Not 100% sure on the timber species, but i suspect its Red Oak, or similar :D

Another project to add to the portfolio :D

Ta

Tom :D

Nice job, Tom. Lovely weaving - what did you use? Oh, and another vote for pine of some sort.

Okay, 'nuff praise, get back to the books. :p :wink:

Cheers, Alf

Nice one Tom. It brings back memories of the first project i ever made at school. The only difference was that i used some reed type thing to weave the seat.

Regards

Nice job, Tom - well done! That's a very well tried and tested design you have got there. I go for pitch pine, too. Bias-binding, IIRC, was a tape used by mums for finishing the hems on curtains, etc.

Woody,

'Spect you are talking about one of these. :lol: The seat is woven in what was called sea-grass. Made this one at school in 1957, in oak with all planing and m/t joints done by hand, french polish finish (not much of that left), and got me a G.C.E. in woodwork! :roll: :D Still going strong - now used by LOML as a 'step-up' to reach the high kitchen cupboards.



Cheers,

Trev.
