  1. Projects Danish Adirondack Chair?

    I built this deck lounge chair using leftover pressure-treated decking from a deck skirting project. I modeled the design after the GE-375 by Hans Wegner, which to me looks like a modern Adirondack chair. I hope to build a few more over the winter and will decide on a finish in the spring...
  2. Journal Danish Adirondack Chair?

    The final push to finish the chair was a hodge-podge of activities: Cutting the channel for the reversible pillow support rail (a high and a low position). I made one last jig to route the channel (I think I'm up to 13 jigs for this chair). Attaching the arm and arm support with some...
  3. Journal Danish Adirondack Chair?

    I made 3 variations of the jig for drilling the bolt holes in both the ends of the stretchers and into the side assemblies. The first was just to be able to mark where the holes would be drilled, and then I'd use a combination of drill press, hand drill, and dowel drilling jig to drill the...
  4. Projects My Recovery Chair

    This a protype for a set of dining chairs that I am working on. The back is too low, so the next prototype version I will increase the angle on the back leg assembly. The original intention was for them to go out back but SWMBO wants dining chairs so the next version will have a soft seat and a...
  5. Journal Danish Adirondack Chair?

    While the original chair clearly uses knock-down assembly, I couldn't find any photos of the chair in pieces or locate any assembly instructions. So, I don't really know how the seat frame was fastened to the lower rear stretcher. I suspect it was done with dowels. I'll use Dominos. I...
  6. Journal Danish Adirondack Chair?

    I made another router jig to cut the 5 mortises in each of the back stretchers that will accommodate the slats. The jig is exactly the same length as the stretchers, so each one is aligned with one edge to start (using one end consistently to index the right end of each stretcher). The top...
  7. Journal Danish Adirondack Chair?

    Not much to see here. I'm going to use Pirelli straps with clips for the prototype chair. I'm not sure it that's going to be the best choice for outdoor chairs, and will probably try something with paracord for the next seat frame. The visible front edge of the seat frame is a for 1" thick...
  8. Journal Danish Adirondack Chair?

    The pressure-treated tenon stock is all 3/8" thick. These are the stretcher pieces prior to shaping and cutting to length. The 3/4" stretchers receive a 3/8" radius roundover. The 1" stretcher (under the front of the seat) will just get eased edges later. Its flat top edge will support a...
  9. Journal Danish Adirondack Chair?

    With most of the router mortising jigs done, I put them to work, cutting the mortises in the side assemblies and the stretchers. With one side done, I discovered that the middle mortise on back riser was too large. I had cut it out at 7/8" wide instead of 3/4" wide. I repaired both...
  10. Journal Danish Adirondack Chair?

    After replacing all of the skirting on my deck, I was left with a bunch of scrap pieces of 5/4" pressure-treated planks. I thought I'd see if I could build some deck chairs with the leftovers. After looking at various types of chair designs, I settled on modeling one after Hans Wegner's...
  11. Quick Boot Bench

    My brother called a couple days ago and wanted this for a Christmas gift. Since there's no reason to wait till the last minute, I decided to get it done right away. After all, he gave me 5 days to make it. 4 feet wide, 2 feet deep and 3 feet tall. Made of Beetle Kill Pine. Several coats of...
  12. Walnut cube wood accent Stool / Table ~ Hourglass style

    Walnut cube wood accent Stool / Table ~ Hourglass style 12X12X18 Cutting the piece in this way exposes more of the colorful heartwood & lightens the piece for reasonable shipping. More pics at http://www.around-the-bend.com & in my ebay store...
  13. Special table and chairs

    For this project I had to take into account many safety things that is safe for old people with bad motility and the space is quite limited. Made from ash and oiled
  14. Windsor Legs, Posts -- Don't Give Up Hope!

    Well, since I've been running around the world, quite literally, haven't had much time to get back on the Windsor pony and get to my Boston side chairs. I did, however, get back into the shop over T-giving and finished up turning the legs and side posts for the two chairs I'm building to go...
  15. Adirondack Chairs

    Here are a couple of chairs I made a while back. They're made of cypress. I stole the idea for the folding mechanism from somewhere on the internet. My more recent attempts (not pictured) eliminate the pegs, which are a problem to make without a lathe (I made these from 2 different sizes of oak...
  16. Morris Chair

    This version of the Morris Chair is based on the New Yankee Workshop plans with some modifications. First, I reduced the size of the slats on the sides to make it similar to the coffee table I built a few months ago. Second, I slightly reduced the dimensions of the legs by 1/4" each side to...
  17. Walnut Chess Table and Chairs

    Years ago I had built this game table for my chess set. Years down the road I decided it was time to have some chairs to go along with it. I used the same design that I used on the other chairs I have built but the back rests on them varied. I wouldn't exactly call this an inlay job but it's...
  18. Chair / stool

    One of my friends brought back a chair / stool from Egypt and let me take measurements. The first two pics are my prototype made from poplar, with the third being made for my son out of oak. The beauty of this is that it actually looks like a chair or a stool.
  19. Chair for grand daughter #1

    I built this chair and several others in 1999 and had them on hand in hopes that grandchildren would come along to use them. Grandaughter #1 arrived in 2007, and this chair was decorated for her for Christmas that year. It was there when she learned to walk, and has been part of her life ever...
  20. Grass Hut with video platform

    Like I said before, I work for a trade show company and some times we get some interesting requests for booth furnishings. These guys wanted a grass hut with a platform hanging from the roof to hold there video projector. So that's what they got. I've never built a grass hut before so I had to...
