When I did a chair-making course the tree had been felled that morning :lol:El Barto":2ppfjpb9 said:
Thank you, appreciate it. To be honest I don't know how green the timber was. It had been in James' timber store which is partially covered, but I'm not sure for how long.
It wasn't quite that fresh! Where did you do it?[/quote]
I did a course with Goodrun Leitz in Ledbury http://www.greenwoodwork.co.uk/ . Being so green the wood was a delight to turn on the pole lathe. The only bit of seasoning was the spindles which Gudrun popped into her AGA overnight.
I made the chair about 20 years ago and even though no glue was used the joints are as solid now as when it was made.
