For those who read my blog regarding my tribute to my grandfather, this is the completed glider.
Native Texas cedar. All fastners are brass (except glider brackets & associated hardware). Finished with three coats of Spar Polyurethane, and topped off with a coat of Johnson’s Finishing Wax. The finishing wax almost makes it to slick, as my beer has a hard time staying on the armrest.
Hope you like. Critisism is welcomed, as this is my first “large” “furniture” project to be completed. I use those terms loosly b/c I have seen the real furniture posted on this site and this doesn’t hold a candle…
