Holy smokes! Didn’t know I’d get welcomed to an Internet site!

I enjoy woodworking as a hobby, though I do sell some items. I’ve been making adirondack chairs and tables out of Luan Mahogany using Norm’s plan.

My next project is to build a router station for my shop, as soon as I get someone with a truck to help me pick up my sheet goods!

Next will be Steamer Chairs (like on the Titanic), made out of teak. An octagon teak table will be after that.

At some point, I want to make some fine indoor furniture, starting with an Asian influenced coffee table.

Thanks again guys for the warm welcome!

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Hi Dean, your valet box is a good looking box, some times when you’re using a stop block you may have burs on the end grain, so I always check each end before I put it against the stop block. The Morris Cair is great, the curve on the arms looks perfect, you took on a task that most experienced cabinet makers would not have tried, the lamination looks great, also you as the craftsman will notice your imperfections more because you made them, but most people will not. How did you sew the leather /fabrick on the cushions
