Windsor Chair Seat Carving Video with Peter Galbert - How to Use an Adze - Part 1

I promised to post video of Peter giving instruction on carving a seat during the class we had back in May. As you'll see, it all starts with the adze. Peter and Tim Manney collaborated to develop an adze specifically for carving seats (although it would also work just fine for bowls, etc.). I highly recommend it. I already owned an old school adze, but after giving Tim's a go I had to have one. It is so light and effective. I don't think his wait list is super long right now so if you need one it might be a good time to contact him.

Anyway, Peter does a nice job of explaining the function and use of an adze in this video. Enjoy!

  3. Another problem that's guaranteed to be encountered after you have a white chair in your workplace is that of maintenance. Maintaining a white workplace chair as white may be quite an task in itself. they're vulnerable to showing all the mud and dirt that they collect. A stain or 2 of ink or grease will around ruin the looks of the white chair. this can be as a result of a white chair is simply that- white. additionally to that showing any stain or dirt that it's going to accumulate, it's quite redoubtable to sit down on a white chair. associate worker could also be perpetually worrying whether or not his/ her pen might scratch against the chair's surface and build a blue line.
