Hello everyone,

Well, I’ve been out of the workshop, taking advantage of the season and doing my share of fly fishing (WoHoo!), but between sneaking away for a quick cast or two and making my share of sawdust I managed to put together a new video and template project for all my woodworking friends who have been asking for this cool little project.

Even if you don’t have any interest in building one, visit the above link and read the description about the chair (at the bottom).

I swear, I crack myself up.

Thanks for looking!

Scott…

The last time I “Whooshed”....I hurt myself. No whooshing allowed.
Your right though, the lowback IS a keeper! Extremely comfortable….actually, I get a real kick out of it, because you can count down from 5 after someone sits in it for the first time. After 4-5 seconds, the first word out of their mouth is a surprised ‘WOW’!!
I wish I’d had your plans when I built mine….would have saved a lot of time.

Thank you for all the kind words everyone. I appreciate everyone taking the time.

Mathew, it doesn’t require much courage. Just sharp tools and a good sense of humor. The rest is easy.

Cheers everyone!

Looks like a fine job. Not sure why, but I like that style, I think:-))

It looks as though it was cut from one piece of wood. Outstanding job!
