The Charles Neil pre color conditioner is on the Adirondack chair. Tomorrow I’ll go out and get some water-based redwood stain and give the pieces a coat then when that dries I’ll assemble it. I can then put a sign out front and advertise the chairs.

I’ve been busy today. I made some wheels for my band saw because it’s getting scooted all over the place and it doesn’t scoot easily. I didn’t put the big fancy wheels with brakes on it, but it seems stable enough. I got a belt sander too at HF. Makes life much easier.
The shop is finally set up where I can do some production, by Friday I should be ready to cut out some more Adirondack chairs and have them ready to stain and assemble.

This is hard physical work and I love it. Not that stuff I used to do where you sit on a computer all day, but real healthy WORK.

I hear you Russ, I sit at a computer all day, that’s why I’m in the shop at 5:30am until 7:30am then again at 6:00pm until 11:00pm. Unless my daughter wants to do something with me. Sometimes woodworking sometimes a vide game, most of the time it’s with her friends. She’s getting to that age where she still likes to do stuff with me, but a playdate with one of her friends is more appealing to her.

Please post the chairs when you finish them, I’d love to see how they came out. Have you ever used water based stai.n? I use it more when it’s project with my little girl, (no fumes), or if I need a particular color on a tight grained wood.

I haven’t decided on the stain yet. Depends on what I can get around here. I prefer to oil woods instead of stain them or dye. This is the show piece for my business, so I want it as traditional as possible. I have to go put another coat of pre conditioner on later. I hope I have some 360 grit sand paper around here somewhere.
