Chairlopnik

Earlier this year I started making a dining room chair for my oldest daughter. I finally finished it:

She wanted a “rocket chair”, so I got out the wood chisels. First time ever working with any significant amount of hardwood (in this case walnut), as well as the first time carving something substantial. For a guy that never took shop class in high school, I think it turned out pretty well.

It was also the first time I have used wipe-on-poly.  Pretty neat stuff, but I think it took at least 6 coats.  The chair definitely isn’t perfect, but I’m still reasonably pleased with how it turned out.
