Each winter I try to take on a project and this year the chosen project was one that will make our summer more enjoyable. The first step was procuring the necessary materials, a few pressure treated deck board hauled home on a snowy day
Moving them into my little shop I introduced them to a few simple hand tools as the project got underway.
Circular Saw, Jig Saw, 3/8" Drill, Belt Sander and a Carpenter's Square
The results of the project sitting on the deck awaiting warmer weather for a coat of deck stain.
Close up of the table; come on spring we're ready now!
The Adirondack furniture's simplicity of design lends itself to the do-it yourselfer and can be built from scratch with only a few simple hand tools.
How nice - and inspiring
This project should yield hours of relaxation,all you need is the weather to go with the chairs.
Good golly, Coy, they are awesome!
Great project for a winter's day!
Love those chairs! My brother is a good craftsman and made some of cedar. They're beautiful. I've tried to talk him into giving them to me, but he refused. You have a great idea to keep yourself busy.
That's a good project! Now for spring to arrive....
Wow, they look great. They would love great on my deck.
Nice looking carpentry work!
Nice work Coy ... now, make me a set!
Very nicely done. This is my kind of project, too. When my wife sees this she will want the same.
They are beautiful!! Where do I place my order?
I always wanted to make a set of those. You make it sound simple! Your projects look perfect! Well done!
Thanks everyone for your nice comments! Sorry but I'm not taking orders; I need to get back to my outdoor photography instead of pharting around the shop :)
Hannibal, actually they are easy to make once you have a pattern. Everything is bolted or screwed together and the joints do not require tight tolerance parts, hand tools work very well.
