Gluing together the Bognor arm chair

I just glued together this Bognor comb back arm chair. The Bognor takes the classic Windsor sack back, converts it to a comb back, and then simplifies some of the lines while retaining all the hallmark characteristics of the original.

The legs are first glued using tapered and wedged joinery. Then the excess is trimmed off and the seat is sanded flush. Next, the spindles, arm, and then comb are fitted together using wedged joints. Wedging all the tenons ensures that the joints are extremely strong and long lasting. Once the glue dries in about 24 hrs I will cut the spindles flush and then sand it smooth. I will then start applying the finish, a multi-step process.
