« Part 1: Introduction Part 2 of Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair series Part 3: Check Out Those Gams! »

I got the wood for this project for free from a friend of a friend’s old bookshelves.

Some of it is badly warped, there are a few screw holes in it a bunch of places that I’ll have to plug, and it’s discolored from years of use so I am pre-sanding everything with 80 grit. Beggars can’t be choosers!

All in all, there were four 6’x10” boards and eight 3’x10” boards.

I laid everything out with my drywall square and speed square, making sure to leave at least 1/8” between each piece, following the cutlist from the plans.

Once everything was laid out and labeled correctly, I took to the table saw, ripped, and cut to my heart’s content until I had a pile of shorts ready to go.
