"adirondack chair making" #1: my first adirondack chair was made in 1995, now two decades later, I am still at it

02-05-2014 10:37 AM by paperclip | 2 comments »

when I was a freshman in high school (1995), I won the end of the year award for woodshop when I produced an Adirondack Chair. Now 2014, I am still at it. I only get better and better at them. Now I am giving them some Texas, southwestern, rustic flare with a cut-out the shape of the state. I now make Adirondack chairs on a weekly basis mostly for therapy. But I sell them too. In post(s) to follow I will explain more about Adirondack chair making.

As part of my decision to put some products on ETSY i did a little test. I choose three products, all clocks but a different designs. I E-Mailed pictures of all three to freinds of mine and ask the to choose one that they might take a second look at or be somewhat interested in IF they were surfing a WEB Site and saw them. The results: Clock A got 2 votes Clock B got 2 votes Clock C got (you guessed it) 2 votes. WELL I guess that helped my decisions process a lot.

I have been asking questions and seeking information about Consignment store opportunities both in my BLOG and through other sources.

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #56: Repurpose your patterns and thinking.
