Thanks Guys  :)

Splendid  :)  :) Can you come and work on ours (holiday in Switzerland  :) )

Sounds like a marvellous idea but I think my arm needs a rest before I do any more  :Lol:

The brown stuff has finally vacated the workshop and I have found some castings hiding on the bench :pinkelephant:

one of the tenons broke and I had to learn how to repair a tenon (with success ;) )

but first you have to learn how to cut a mortise to accommodate the new tenon - it look like a never-ending job...

I successfully cleaned out the existing mortise  ;D

Hello Jo

Well done for completing the full set of chairs. I bet you were grateful for the power assisted stapler.

Cheers

Mike

Thank you Mike  :)

I bet you were grateful for the power assisted stapler.

Actually I used the hand stapler as it provided greater control and had sufficient power to fire the staples fully into the wooden frame.
