We love all things Jason Bedre! One of his chairs, "Curvis Sedis
II," is particularly memorable. It's got complex joinery of
interlocking dovetails, as well as spline dovetails, a covered seat
that's tapered to the edge, and a frame made of bent laminations. "It
was a real test of seeing how far I could go, and push the limits of
what I could do, to make it. I was sort of challenging myself, I
guess," Jason said.
This was Jason's entry in the Texas Furniture Makers Show in 2012 - beauty in every detail!. As quoted in the Woodworkers Journal Jason says:
"I like bent laminations; I like hand-cut dovetails -- I like the way they look." Also, he said, "It's taken me about 12 years to appreciate hand tools in a major way. I'll use a power tool if it will do the job better, but I can at least now appreciate when a hand tool is the appropriate choice." See more information on General Finishes Endurovar here.
