Hey folks,

Been a while since I posted a project, but doesn’t mean I haven’t been woodworking. Here’s the Adirondack Beach Chair I made from the excellent plans I got from Phil B. Check out my blog for all the gory details.

Hey Matt! Great to hear from you. I actually just reread your build blog the other night. I’m looking at possibly building a Pocketship from CLC. I already built an Eastport Pram, which I need to post on here. So glad you’re doing well. Thanks for reaching out.

Hey Jeff, thanks! Where is MO are you? I just checked out your FB page the other day. I’m from Cedar Hill, about half hour outside St. Louis out Hwy 30 from South County. Dig your stuff.

Hey T, love me some mesquite, although it’s touch on the blades. The great thing about the design is that the uprights are thick enough to safely support your weight, regardless of what wood you use. I think Phil uses pine often. I wanted mine to be made of oak, which makes them a little bit heavier.

Hey Chris….great job….looking forward to the CNC process as well on your blog. I’m very impressed that you cut and built 2 chairs in oak…off the tailgate of a pickup ! :)

Nice to see my plans worked out…LOL
