Well, I spoke too soon about the chair. I glued and clamped the legs to the seat today with epoxy and just took them out of the clamps. Apparently the clamps weren’t aligned correctly and the legs are skewed inward at the top and the backrest no longer fits between the two legs. It could have been worse and skewed the other way with the backrest being too short. Looking back, I should have temporarily attached the backrest during glueup.  I’ll hunt eggs tomorrow and worry about it on Monday. 

Coop have you ever used Hyde glue ?

I've started to use it, Old Brown Glue. Haven't used it on any chairs yet but I will likely use it on some rockers this summer. Love the longer set time and the fact you can always "unglue" something. How long have you used it?

We may need to get Bmac to teach a class on making the chairs and rockers. I would like to sit in the back of the class room.

I'd be in the back of your milling class.

No, never have. “Unglueing “ would be awfully handy right now.

I've never used it. I will buy some when I put my chair together.

Coop here are my back braces and rockers. They hang out on the ceiling just because.

Dave, I haven't made any money today but I haven't lost any. I did get a call from Dolly Parton first cousin today, wanting to come next week to get lumber.

Nice looking bowls Gary..  I had some Walnut and Spalted Maple for you.  I'll paint the ends and save it until you come here or Rickey goes  there.

It takes alot of wood to dry lumber. I don’t like to chop wood as good as Bmac does.

Dave look what the Houston Boy got at a Old Hardwood Store. I told him he needed to buy that. Now he’s a logger!
