My version of the Titanic Lounge, based on the Popular Woodworking article. Finished with Cetol. For those planning to build, every piece is curved, so plan on tuning up the bandsaw. I used spokeshaves instead of a drum sander, which I think are faster and certainly cleaner.

Thanks everyone for the comments.

Quick answers
The plans and article are available as a fee download from popularwoodworking.com. You need to be registered on the site (free). Just do a search for ‘titanic’ on their search bar.

The build time was around 40 hours. You download the full size plans. I took mine to FedEx/Kinko’s and for five bucks they will print them out on a full size plotter. Cut them out and spray adhesive them to thin plywood for templates. This goes pretty quick. There are several pieces that need to be cut with curves in multiple planes. This takes a while. But the really long part is the seat/back/foot rest slats. They are all curved with tenons. The back slats are all slightly different lengths, so plan to spend time trimming and finessing. The plan instructions are a bit sparse and for me the hardest part was that the only photo in the article was from the back. Took a lot of think time to figure out the puzzle pieces – which is why my pic is from the front.

Well done. Years ago, I ordered the plans from the NYW…made the templates but can’t find the brass hardware Norm used. Oh well, I’ll have find some hardware and/or adjust the templates.

Joe, I believe the hardware is available at Rockler. The plans should have the product numbers.
