12 Rough Roorkhee Chairs


I spent the morning digging through some very old 8/4 and 6/4 mahogany at Midwest Woodworking. This material will be for my June class on building a Roorkhee chair at Kelly Mehler’s School of Woodworking in Berea, Ky.

If you are in the class, you are in for a real treat. This material is beautiful.

And if we are cautious and quick we might have enough time and material to make a Roubo folding camp stool, too.

    I like the birdhouse much more now that it has some patina on it. Darn, now I may have to build one.
