An Ebeneezer Tracy pattern carved knuckle hand-rest
Currently in the shop, I am working on three chairs. I am in the process of turning spindles, carving combs for two fan-back side chairs, and carving knuckle hand-rests for a large sack-back. The knuckle pattern I have come to use on any of my chairs requiring knuckle hand-rests, is a pattern I traced off a Ebeneezer Tracy sack-back. A photo of one of my Tracy style hand-rests is pictured above. In spite of having to much to do already, I thought that I would take the opportunity to photo-document creating a knuckle hand-rest. Over the next few weeks I will post a series of pictures showing how I make my knuckle hand-rests. One of the unfortunate features of the blog form is that everything will presented backwards in time. The first shall be last, and the last shall be first. I think someone said that already. Please bear with me. Thanks. STB
