Since I’m not running a large factory, I’ve decided to imprint “G. RIETVELD ZIG ZAG 1932” on the bottom piece. This way when I’m dead and gone, and my relatives wanted to know a little more about the odd chair I built, they will have some reference information.
This is a pretty easy task. Not a whole lot to it.
Step one: lay out a straight line.
Step two: test the first letter (in terms of how hard to drop the hammer). Looks about right.
Step three: Step back and admire the work.
When I do the final sanding the very small edges around the letters will be sanded smooth, and will look nice.
The chair is now dangerously close to being finished!
