We made a set of templates for the various parts and I got started on my leather work for my chair.
Alex and Brian are making more chair parts, because they also want to make a chair in elm that has octagonal stretchers.
Olav arrived in the afternoon, and since he didn't have a project started yet, he just helped out everywhere a helping hand was needed. His dog Merlin helped by barking if he felt that no work was being done. Just a single WOOOF and he would look at you and you knew that it was you he meant. I guess he was trained to deal with chairbuilders or apprentices :-)
Besides the working and nerding (tool nerding) we are eating evenly distributed meals throughout the day and once in a while we take a beer. So in short we are having a great time.
