Today, I delivered this set of Waltham chairs to a client who lives only 20 or so minutes away. A nice change from the usual need to pay a shipper to deliver or to plan on a two day trip. The chairs have a nice new home with great natural light and will spend their days around a nice table that was made by a friend and competitor, Paul Donio. I'd put a link to his site here, but we are after all, competitors. He can be found on google. He does nice work. Don't tell him I said that though.
Anyway, it was nice to see the chairs in a modern clean setting. They seem to work well with traditional or modern decor.
On to the sideboard-
Below are the hand cut dovetailed drawer parts for four drawers all ready for assembly.
Here, the sideboard is finally ready for final sanding and painting. (The drawers do still need to have their joints planed.) The knobs for the drawers and doors will be added after the painting is complete.
It is hard to see in this photo but there is a nice thumbnail detail on the edge of the top that I just shaped today after and before my chair delivery and before picking up my son from school, taking him to his guitar lesson, picking up my daughter from her after school drawing class, taking them home and then taking her to a swimming lesson. The days do fill up quickly.
Next up are all of the chairs and stools that I mentioned in my last post.
Enjoy the sleet, rain and wind.
