Arms, Head and Ears
After gluing up the arms, I was able to tackle the final fairing into the legs. Then it's time to cast my eyes further up the back leg and assess the massive chunk of wood there...further fairing of the headrest into the back legs in preparation for the spindle and headrest glue-up. And yes we have a set of ears.
It's about as back-breaking as you would think; very carefully removing unfathomable amounts of walnut while crouched over the chair. No idea how Sam made these for a living. I'm declaring Sam the strongest man to have ever lived.
