Today in the Shop

I've just started prototyping a chair.  I think this is one of the most challenging things to design well - I've never felt ready to tackle this.  I've made a couple preliminary mock ups of the main joint.  I am using oak strip flooring saved from a house that was being demolished - it is perfect for this.

I also found this desk in the back alley on my way home from walking Jian and Weijin to school.  I love the metal legs.  It's made from plywood, and not particle board, so I am able to re-veneer it, and clean it up.  I've already covered the top in bamboo veneer.  It is going to be for Jian's room.  It doesn't look like much now, but it will be great!
