Part 6: The back rest

For the back rest i found and old recycled piece of butchers block counter top. 

“Which weighs a ton”.

I measured it up to the chair then cu it to size. I then did a dry run and attached the back to the chair. Once I knew it was a nice fit I removed the back and took  over to the drawing desk.

 

I spent a few hours carefully drawing out the map of Westeros with a pencil, then marked it out with a sharpe.

The design was then cut out using a Dremel and small chisels.

Once it was completely finished I attached the back rest using strong wood glue and large nails through the back supports.

Gallery showing the progress so far as well as how the trunk lid operates now the back is attached. 

Coming soon………part 7: The crest rail.
