No woodworking this weekend:thumbsup2:
Friday afternoon I coated all the parts with a two part sealer (brushed on).
I'm using Osaka Paints products. This stuff is very thin and gets into the grain and seals it up, letting me fill the grain with a sanding sealer later.

I set up and brushed this sealer on outside. Here's some of the back slats.

This stuff dries quick, and I was able do start on sanding back some of the parts

Saturday at the beach (Keiya Beach in Itoshima City, Fukuoka Prefecture)
I went hiking and climbing to get up on a big rock to take this picture of Keiya

Those are some wonderful pictures Okamisan! You could have a fall-back profession. How far do you live from that area where you took the pictures?

So, do you read & write Japanese? A very artful calligraphy.

(Based on your recommendation I have that same Metabo sander & love it.)

I'm about 30miles from Keiya beach in Itoshima, I really like that area though.. Layed back (for Japanese anyway;) )
my Reading and writing in japanese is awful, pretty much non existant..I'm just pretty crap at that kind of stuff:D

that little Metabo sander is a beauty eh! It's great for these chair parts!

Maybe Stu will drop in and tell us what the thing actually SAYS. :Laughing2:

Your chairs (and the magnificent table you posted in the other thread) are fabulous, Okami. Just beautiful.
I always love your work - the design sensibility as well as the craftsmanship. :thumbsup2:

And... now I am REALLY curious about how you came to live in Japan.
If you don't mind sharing, I'd love to hear that story.

:popcorn:

If you look at the quoted post, I added what it says Heiwa (peace:thumbsup2:).

Well how I came about living here..After college and working for a several years in my home country ( England UK ), I headed for Australia, where I lived and worked for a few years. One day I met my now wife, we stayed in Australia for a while, then headed to Japan where we got married. We decided to stay here a while ans see how things went, so I started up my business..and here I am, still here:)

Alright..I've been doing other bits and pieces along with these chairs.
They were actually finished last week, just havent had the time to do pictures.
I didn't take any pics of me spraying and glueing up the parts:o

Anyway...here's what I use to spray. I bought this second hand a couple of years back

Here's the slip seats being done.
The base is ply (which has holes drilled to allow air to escape) followed by a firm chip foam. Then a medium foam and a layer of bedding. Finished off with a soft foam wrapped over it all (You can just see one in the background of the photo)

The slip seat (its called slip because it slips into the rebate) is held in place via the corner blocks. A bolt goes through each block and into the ply seat base.

Here's one of the upholstered seats. The material choice is not mine by the way:D

The trick with a slip seat is getting it to slip into the rebates firmly and consistently, without big gaps or wavy upholstery along the material-rebate line. It takes a little trial and error to get it right, depending on the foam and material used. Like I said before, I'm no upholsterer...
