This is my first post. I’ve enjoyed woodworking since the early 70’s. I’ve made and discarded a lot of pieces of furniture. I learn by trial and error, because I know very few people who enjoy woodwork like I do. I freely admit that I’m not a great woodworker. I have very little artistic ability. I worked at a woodwork installer (carpenter has come to mean handyman more that woodworker). I now have a business that installs and work around guys that really are talented. It’s humbling. In 2015 people weren’t paying for high end woodwork and I built 15 library style chairs. I’ve always considered quality chairs to be one of the most difficult projects and stayed away from them. My chairs are very comfortable and heavy (I seem to make everything heavy). Scooping the chair bottoms out of oak was the most challenging.
