|The Mulesaw Family Compound.|
I actually beat Jonas home. When he finally got home from work, we went out to the shop and spazzed out over tools and chairs and stuff until early in the morning.
After a few hours sleep, we got up and got the shop ready for our chair build. Altogether there will be either four or five people building Welsh Stick Chairs here over the next few days. Unfortunately, not everyone could make it today, so Jonas and I figured we would rough out all the parts so all everyone would have to do Saturday is pick out their parts, and start shaping them.
|Jonas' shop. There should actually be room for a few people to build in here!|
|This is what happens to your hair when you are at sea with no one to make an appointment at the barber for you.|
|We wound up with seven seat blanks, and a blank for a settee. Some of the seat blanks have grain going fore and aft , and some of them have the grain going starboard to port (a little sailor lingo there).|
|Mrs. Mulesaw snapped some candid photos of us, so I figured fair is fair. She's moving horse manure out of the stables.|
|This was interesting. This log is right next to our waste from the seat blanks.|
|Ash log #2. Notice how good a man with sideburns looks with a broadaxe.|

|An interesting bit I am considering implementing into my piece.|
And Saturday, beware of the Wrath of Snakeye!
