Due to the long flight from CT, only of a few of the pieces
could be preassembled. It took many many hours of cutting,
carving, drilling, sanding, gluing, and finishing just to
get to this point.
As you can see, Farfar used a number of different woods:
- the head is maple, with butternut horns,
- the upright is Honduran mahogany,
- the body is white oak,
- the seat is maple, and
- all of the various-sized dowels used to hold it together
are birch, as are the hand and foot rails.
