Another batch of miniatures under construction


Partially assembled miniature Sackback Windsor chairs on my workbench.
I am currently working on a batch of eight miniature Windsor chairs. I spent this week turning legs and stretchers. Thirty-two legs, sixteen side stretchers and eight center stretchers. All split from green maple and then turned on my lathe. Tomorrow I will drill a mortise in each leg so that I can fit the stretcher subassemblies to each chair. With the under-carriages complete, I am going to turn to making the steam bent arm and back bows and the spindles.
I have documented the construction of an earlier group of miniatures in a series of posts previously published in this blog.
Thanks for dropping by.  STB
