I just wonder how many unfinished projects we all have laying around in our shops. I know I get started on one, either get bored with it, get stuck not knowing how to do the next step, or get frustrated because I can’t get the project to look like that darn magazine picture. :-)
While cleaning I realized that I had not finished a set of child size Adirondack chairs for friend of mine. That’s what I’ve been doing tonight. I’ve managed to get both seats done and one back rest. I think about 3 or 4 years ago I said I’d never make another set of these, but here I am making more. I think I can make these things in my sleep.
Here’s a quick pick of the chair without the arms.
It’s hard to tell, but this really is a child’s chair – it only stands about 20” from floor to the top of the back rest. A normal size adult (is there such a thing) could not sit in one of these – once the arms are on – anyone bigger than maybe a 12 year old would get stuck!
I notice in the pick that it looks like I have a slat on the seat that is sticking up. I’m not sure how that is because it’s not in real like sticking up – might be reflection I don’t know. But the seat is smooth.
And last but not least , for good measure – I’m going to throw in my finished cutting boards. I’ve only snapped a picture of three of the finished ones – there are six all together.
All in all I’m on a pretty good streak of sawdust therapy this week. Actually, to be honest, I was thinking earlier that today has probably been my best health day in about a year. I feel great. With my Dystonia I know that won’t last but I sure am grateful when I have good days, and having a great day is just icing on the cake – and I love icing! :-)
Thanks for reading and letting me share.
