    another chair, but a great little weekend project

    somewhere on here I offered plans of a childrens adirondack chair.
    I was waiting for the wipe on poly to dry on the doors today, so I decided to clean out the top of the garage and toss all the old twisted and warped pressure treated.
    I thought I might have enough for something, and I took out my plan, and timed this build, from first cut to final assembly.
    I used the band saw for curved cuts,(ts and mitre) for most cuts, just free handed the curves,(I have a template for the front rail)
    routed over all the edges, then sanded orbital sander 80 grit.
    From start to finish it took me 3 hours 5 minutes, without cleaning up. I spent another 5 minutes picking up pieces and blowing off dust.

    I know Ive shown these little chairs before, but it is the season, and Im sure anyone here can make these chairs, 4 of them, over a weekend, nice little gifts.
    Cost is approx 10.00 each if you have to buy the pressure treated. Add on a few screws(deck or stainless), and the glue.

    worked out good, wipe on dried, time to put another coat on.

    Ah, "The Machine" Levine is back at it. Many of us would still be sorting through the boards after three hours.
