    Anyone Up For a New Homework Exercise? [SketchUp]



    How about a chair made from a 10' 2x6? The seat is 40" long. The backrest, 48" and the wedge-shaped bits are 11-1/2" long. Join the wedge pieces to the seat and back rest with 3/8" dia. dowels. That should give you enough to go on. Don't worry about materials or adding a sketchy style unless you want to play.

    Teacher could use another apple, too. Or better, a donut.

    Can we use a board stretcher or do we measure the hypotenuse?

    Garry, I'm looking forward to seeing your results.

    Bill, you can use any tools you like. All I ask is that you work smart, not hard.

    Off to check on my sailboat. It's about 72į here in MN. Crazy weather for the middle of March.

    Notch? Reminds me a lot of the bench Brent built awhile back. He used it up on top of his mountain.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    I think we're supposed to decide how to do that.

    I did think the halving joint would be obvious but here's an exploded view.

    Exploded view removed so Don can do it.
