Part 9: Gap filling and finishing touches.

Now the chair is so close to completion its now that i have to take a little time to look over all the details and make any corrections that are needed. 

 

Firstly I looked for any screw holes or chips in the wood and filled them in with a 50/50 paste of strong wood glue and fine saw dust.

After 24 hours, the paste was fully dry and could be sanded down.

I decided that the arm rest ending at a 45 degree angle wasn’t very visually pleasing so I carved a piece of wood into a slope joining the back post to the arm rest. 

Fine derail baton was cut and attached to the chair around any joins, as well as the lip of the trunk lid.

Coming soon………..part 10: Staining and waxing.
