Let me start by saying that I really didn’t think that it would cost me much for materials for this chair. I thought I could get everything needed for around 100 bucks. After I was done shopping for wood, hardware, and a couple tools I need I spent $177.00. Then I went to home Depot to check thier prices and ended up buying a few more tools I will need like a speed square, router bits and clamps. After checking out I spent a little over $70.00.
So now I’ve spent way more than I thought I would, and that was just buying the cheapest wood for my first go around. But it will be well worth the cost. I’m just suprised how spendy it gets :) just wait till I make the set of chairs out of Bubinga!
So far I have printed the plans from jakeschair.com, and drafted all of the pieces onto poster board for templates. Now I have half of them drawn onto the poplar I bought. After there all transferred to the wood I’ve gotta get a resemblance of a wood shop going in the shed. We shall see, I might do a lot of the work at my work after work and use thier band saw and sanders.
