The show is called A Step Beyond: Collaboration, Innovation, New Works by the Guild of Vermont Furniture Makers.
The opening for this show is on July 9 at the Firehouse Gallery on Church Street in Burlington, Vermont.
My piece for the show will be a chair with a moveable table surface. In the next few blog entries, I will be posting pictures of the chair as it progresses.
Below, I am beginning to rough out the seat shape with an adze. Next I am using an in-shave to smooth out the rough surface and to take it a bit deeper with more control.
Next the travisher is used. This too is a combination of spoke shave and hand plane. It is produces a very controlled cut.
