« Part 19: The burning! Part 20 of Wegner-Inspired Deck Chair series Part 21: Weaving the seat »

I left the chair to cure a few days after 3 coats of poly, and then finished the last few steps to prep for weaving – attaching the add-on weaving slots and installing a bunch of screws that will take the place of the Danish “L” nails. In this soft wood, the nails would likely work loose after a while, so I instead I used some stainless screws that have about 3/8” of smooth shank at the top. These were installed according to the template from Caleb James’ weaving article in Popular Woodworking.

The choice of paracord may not be to everyone’s taste, but I like it. For a preview of what’s to come, here’s a picture of the spool. It’s lime-green with diamond pattern.

That color rope is going to be far, far from what you usually see in this firum. Cool!
