Weaving is so different to the process of cutting and shaping wood that it gives me a break and time to stand in one place and give my full attention to a singular process. Here you can see me wrapping the danish cord at the corner. This is the most critical part of every weave. Once a corner is turned there is no going back. A mistake made can never be corrected properly so perfection is key from beginning to end or at least the best attempt at perfection.
A typical seat usually takes about two and a half hours to complete. My hands, as tough as they are, can only do about three seats a day even when wearing my leather golf gloves. The danish cord is so durable it can really do a number on hands. The results when completed are always worth the effort though.
