So here are a couple woodworking articles from our archives that feature Celtic carving (though the “Peasant Chair” has a distinctly Moravian flavor to all but the carved back).
Both the “Celtic Love Spoon” and the “Peasant Chair” predate our digital files, so I’ve provided PDFs for download below.
The chair had a “pull-out plan” in the issue, that I wasn’t able to scan. So I took a picture instead (click on it to see it larger):
And may you live as long as you want, and never want as long as you live.
P.S. If you’re looking for a more involved Irish project, check out the June 2012 issue – the “Sligo Chair” featured on the cover, by Don Weber, has it’s origins in the 16th century. The carving at the top of the back is just gorgeous.
Here are some supplies and tools we find essential in our everyday work around the shop. We may receive a commission from sales referred by our links; however, we have carefully selected these products for their usefulness and quality.
