A Special Project

Two very special chairs
Cane wrapped and woven
custom built metal frames.  Only 4 exist.
Progress in the shop
Bifocals required
All done.
The missing "foot" needed to be rebuilt.  There was very little sign that it even existed before examination.
The lid was in serious need of repair.
The lid joins here.
The finished weave
Back side
Every tube and rod is wrapped

Another Special Project

The basket below is a Truseau Basket, much like a hope chest.  This one has a curious history going back to a voyage out of Hong Kong over a hundred fiftyyears ago, complete with pirates.

As it arrived.
The finished "foot".
Much of it had to be replaced with sound material.
The lid parts being joined.
