In September, myself and three of my friends went chair bodging in Gloucestershire for six days. It was good fun, and involved the use of a pole lathe, shaving horse and various niche hand tools. The wood used for the legs and bracing is ash, and the seat is poplar. I decided to make a variation of an armchair, and with some resistance came to terms with the fact it was never going to be perfect.
