My sister loves these chairs and has asked me to make some.
I don’t have that kind of talent.
Yours are very good looking and the signs are very nice also, maybe I’ll have to show her your chairs and let her see what a real woodworker can make.
Great Job and thanks for sharing.

I konw. Every time I build a piece for a customer I want to keep it. Then again I can always make more.

I really like the style you have with these adirondack’s. I remember when I first started checking these out I thought they where all the same. After looking at many plans and seeing ones posted here on L.J. I found I was wrong….lol

My personal favorite is the bar height set. I was going to build a standard set myself, but after seeing this…. Well I may go another route now…

Thanks for sharing…

Yea, the bistro set seems to be the most popular but at around $800 a set we have only sold a few to a couple of taverns.
Thanks,

Great furniture, I build the same stuff here in AZ, I too am working on other things to bring in extra money as people like the cheap stuff from the big box stores that falls apart in one season. They just don’t see the quality in sturdy hand built furniture.

Good Luck.

Hay Dr. I started making and selling these in ‘07 and it started out real good. The everything went south. I got my wife into making the routed signs and she still is selling some. The furniture doesn’t move at all. Now I’m making boxes and, hopfully, they will begin to sell. Christmas IS coming. I’m also taking on anything someone will pay me for. But most customer don’t realize that I can’t and won’t produce something as cheap as they can buy it at R.C. Willie
