As I posted mid-September, I found myself in the middle of Hurricane Ike. While my housing complex remained standing, Ike did take out the local fenceline, and I heroically salvaged about 200 bd. ft. of cedar planking. In the dead of night.

Just two of the current results. Not the best joinery, but hey, the color scheme came out great and I got to actually find a use for my new set of planes. And my grandfather-in-law (I don’t actually have a grandfather myself, so he’s closest I got) loved the refinishing of a cast-away coffee table.

Of course, he immediately said “When I was your age, I could do better.” In Vietnamese. I’m glad somethings stay the same across all cultures.

I think you should call it an Ike-irondack chair!
