complex forms (part II)

These are more process pictures of the pair of stools that I am making for the Re:collect show Re:View Contemporary. Our last installment showed the basic pieces cut out and some of the upper joinery cut. Following that was a lot of hand work to tune the joint's fittament, gluing, cutting and designing the joinery for the lower end of the pieces. Following that, assembly, shaping, beveling, sanding, drilling and finishing, oh my. Enjoy, next week I'll have some pictures of the pieces with the seats woven in.
