Was raining today and since my shop is the “Little Shop that Could” I made a miniature set of chairs so I wouldn’t have to move anything outside! IT WAS FUN!

I put a 15T/Inch by 1/8 blade in the band saw and re-sawed the planks. Each part (except for the gussets) are exactly 1/8 scale. I used scrap cypress from a set of chairs I built last week. It only took a couple of small sticks to build these. I’m thinking they would make great business card holders, decorative ornaments on or under the tree, or a great reminder at the office of why we work! The sky is the limit right?

To fasten the parts, I used Testors Cement for metal and wood projects – the green tube. The stuff worked great once it set up.

It was a great way to spend a cloudy, rainy day!

Hey Eddiie….love “the little ones”. Looks like they may also hold the open bottle of wine !

Thanks for the plug above. A lot of my chairs are in my gallery as well. You can make the little ones from my $4.95 downloadable 8 1/2×11 paper plans, instead of enlarging them.

If you ever need CAD work done….contact Eddie….he does all mine !

Great work Eddie, now you just need to carve some small people to sit in them. One thing leads to another….......

Look great. I’ve seen those where the back is used for a picture frame.
