This was my first project on my new table saw. I used half laps to join the rails with the stiles. My wife was responsible for the fabric, and I got a good excuse to buy myself a nail gun.

Thanks guys. I’m not sure it’s really a nail gun. It’s more of a power stapler… ($20 from HD) :) But it sure saved a lot of time.

Nice job Boaz. What wood did you use? I thought Poplar, but maybe something else?

It was pine (from HD as well – I don’t have a jointer/planer yet).

Good job and excuse to add another tool to the old collection. Deb, where on earth did you get that hat, he?

I bought the hat a couple years ago during a vacation at Parry Sound, Ontario.
The “ears” are usually tied up but for comedic affect I let them droop. I bought the hat to keep me warm during the winter storms and there were a couple times that I was sure glad I had it.

Debbie’s hat is half flop ears.

Nice job on the half lag joints. Was the fabric stapled to the frame or attached to something like plywood?

Thanks guys.

The fabric was stapled directly to the pine frame using brads. My wife assisted me in holding it nice and tight, and I stapled away.

Have your say...
