Shaping individual parts

Each part is rough shaped, with lots more shaping once the chair is glued up. I've cleaned up the seat, taken the grinder to the armrests and headrest, and the General was thrown into production with a little more waste removal from the rear legs (cutting the seat & armrest radii). I am humbled that Maloof made these chairs for a living, back-breaking stuff, feels like I'm in the midst of a rite of passage. It's also time to accept that I'm horribly allergic to black walnut; it's officially on the list of woods-not-to-work-with in 2015.
