Log Cabins and More

Log Cabins with Lovely Cedar Roofs

Birdhouses and trim will soon be cleared away

I enjoy busy times in the workshop. Various birdhouses are getting set to go out the front door and another big project is ready to come in the back. By 'various', I mean two log cabins with distinctive western cedar roofs, three wren/chickadee houses and one Hobbit house.

Four white pine houses are ready for paint and assembly but they may just have to wait a couple of weeks because a big project - four Rietveld chairs and matching table - has crossed the starting line.

The Rietveld 'crate chair' design goes back to 1937

re Rietveld chair: Lots of straight lines, right angles, cutting, sanding, hidden screws and supports are required; the seat and back rest must also be attached at the perfect angle. Seven degrees.

Or is it eight? : )

More to follow.
