Here is a project I worked on over the spring. It set in my garage for a month because I couldn’t decide if I wanted to stain it or just paint it. I got lazy and didn’t sand properly because I thought if I would just paint it, it would cover some of the mistakes. I ended up staining it and giving it as a gift to my grandmother. I made the decision so sudden, that I didn’t get a chance to get any pictures of it finished exept at her party. I’m already working on another for Christmas. I learned from my mistakes and am doing much better. I still use patterns for just about every project. Maybe one day I’ll have the eye to make things without a pattern. It is made from pine and was stained with puritan pine stain.

I found the pattern in a Cherry Tree Toys magazine or online at cherrytreetoys.com. I believe they actually list it as being named a “glider settee”.

No shame in patterns Tony. As we all know, even with patterns, it isn’t like the project builds itself :)

Nice work. It looks like a comfortable set.

Nice glider! A lot of mortal woodworkers use patterns. Keep up the good work.

Nice glider. I’m building one soon and was wondering where you got the hardware?

I got the hardware online at www.cherrytreetoys.com. I just got the glider hangers online. The rest of the basic carriage bolts and nuts I got at the hardware store.
