WOW! I really like it. How bad was the teak on your blades? That is going to last a LONG time. Very nice.

I can’t beleive how fast my blades dull. i have the dewalt 13in planer. teak is very hard, i leared the exspensive way. 55$ a set. i bet i made 20 passes on a 8in wide board, and they are shot.

Nice looking chair Mudbone..where did you get your teak? I have worked on boats with teak for 40 years and have not seen it with the light colored grain. It must be plantation teak from south america.

Great graining. I hope you relax a wee bit more knowing that you built it so well.

Great looking wood, I too have never seen Teak with that coloring.
Of course I’m not an expert at anything!!!

Nice chair, Love the grain and the fact that you filled in all the holes with plugs. Great attention to detail!
