Haven’t posted in a while, thought I should get at it. These are a few of the chairs my wife and I built over the summer. We sold a total of 16 this year, on consignment at a store that is only open for a few months during tourist season. They are made of white cedar, cut on my fathers woodlot, and milled on my sawmill (that’s what I call local, made in Maine furniture). The plans came from Woodcraft. After final sanding they received three coats of Spar Urethane. Sorry there are no in progress pics., but time was scarce. Any comments welcome, thanks for looking.

Nice looking chairs. They look clean, and well built.
I especially like that you took the process from tree to finished product.

Wow – those are beautiful. I’d love to see you and your wife include photos of the projects in the making. Love to see what you did to create your projects. Neat that the wood comes from you family’s farm.

hjt, I really should take more pics., and also post more projects. I have many, many projects that I haven’t posted, I guess I’m just lazy. I will try to do better. It just seems strange to me that people are interested in what I make, lumberjocks are amazing people. Thank you for the nice comments on all my projects.
