I whipped these up for my assistant and her future husband. Molly is getting married soon and will be leaving to live in the Mississippi Delta on her husband’s family farm. My wife and I wish the best for her and Julius. Ya’ll sit in these and watch the sunset over Old Man River until you both are old fogies like us.
Best wishes to ya’ll, Molly and Julius.
These chairs are made of Bald Cypress with stainless steel bolts and screws. I glued all of the joints with Titebond III glue. All of the wood was planed to 1 inch thick. All screws that would come in contact with your body have been countersunk and plugged with a 3/8 inch cypress bung.
I bought Norm’s plans and made a few modifications. I have a set of full size templates made from 1/2 inch MDF or 1/4 hardboard for all parts and drilling schemes several years ago and these template make producing these chairs much faster and easier.
If you Lumberjocks haven’t made some of these chairs, I encourage you to do so. Once you sit in one, you don’t want to get up.
