    Chair plans

    The recipients were friends that were glad to receive them.
  3. That’s a lot of firewood! Hope you kept the final plans! I was thinking after I posted this that my grandparents and parents have some pretty nice chairs that I could barrow some measurements off of. That might be my best bet.

    Chair plans

    I’m with you bud! I made 3 different prototypes of Adirondack chairs before I was satisfied with the heights and angles!
  5. Does anyone have a source for chair plans? I think my biggest weakness in the shop is drawing up plans. This would be what I’m kinda thinking for a look. Only thing i would changes is the scallops on the top rail would be eliminated. I could probably apply my own measurements to it and come up with something. Only things that has me nervous about that is getting the proper angles to make the chair comfortable.
  6. Do you find that the older the resign, the darker it gets? I found that after about 3-5 years.
  7. I have never seen these saws till now, very impressive! Congratulations on the order!
  8. I like the design. Will the legs be turned or as shown in the pic?

    Now for that, I can drive to Tulsa to spell ya!
  10. Looking forward to this build! Like the overall design, I agree that a drawer would be nice. Could maybe combo a drawer back support and cord management into the same piece.
  11. Man, that’s sweet! Very well done, construction and finish!
  12. That came out real nice Jamie. Job well done.
  13. Final pics. Table is in place.
  14. It's probably a dumb idea, but I'm full of them at times.
  15. Thanks! I will be checking this out in the morning and hopefully clears it up. The drawer was one of the tweaks I was thinking about ... just not sure how big or where to put it. So far my leading thoughts were a smaller one on the outside of the legs, maybe 4" thick or a 3 or 4" thick one running across the mid section. maybe 18-24" wide
  16. My bad forgot about the sawdust
  17. I could fill with epoxy, I was just thinking would it make a less noticeable to mix epoxy and sawdust.
  18. Wouldn’t it work similar to the pour between two slab on a river table
  19. I love my LN dovetail saw an if it wasn’t for the back order that is what I would have gotten.
  20. OK so far this is where I is at. Just finished putting the battens on. Put the criss cross tensioners on, on Friday. Saturday I was building a little covered box type structure that you could sit inside when it rains and shoot targets from (For a local air rifle target club). One of the clubs main blokes was there giving me a hand a recipe for change. So my simple design kept changing, ie "How about if we could sit in it and shoot Bench Rest as well, just like other clubs" And what do u know...Sunday arrived as it will since it comes after Saturday. The regulars showed up for a shoot, the gods must have been listening in and watching because we had a sudden unexpected deluge and guess what. NO ONE used it while it was raining. It did get a brief run earlier while someone used it to line their rifle up as they hadn't used it in several months. I hopped in it to see just how well it worked. I didn't get wet, though I decided that the roofing iron wasn't long enough.
  21. Yesterday
  22. Bad Axe makes a really nice saw. I was looking at the LN DT and carcass saws and decided to keep using my Veritas for the time being due to the back order and I like how the Veritas fits in my hand. I do like the looks of the saws Brian Noel makes at Bearkat Wood.
  23. I know this is the logical thing to do, but I was curious if this type of experiment would work. Maybe if I have extra mixed up at some point will try it.
  24. This is what I'd do..

    Hmm.. I have a load of it stuck here in Oklahoma with me...lol
  26. Good saw! Hard to go wrong with their saws!
  27. I like the design! I'm not a fan of how they "I think" attached the top and I do think it needs a drawer but, it looks simple enough to build. If you're still struggling after the link @chet sent you, let me know and I'll see if I can help maybe with a video..
