This is my favorite project I have done. I finally have a camera to post something on here. I am a bit nervous to do so because so many of the projects I see are so fantastic mine is not comparable to them. But I also see the warm responses to all the projects i see from newbie as I am to the most veteran of woodworker so I know I will not be ridiculed here. This is a great place to read about others works, see pics and feel completely at home to put up our own attempts. This chair i build with my daughter 3 years ago and have kept up the maintenance on it accordingly. Is very sturdy and has been finished in a variety of stain choices each year. Compare the stool to the left with the chair to get a before and after take. This year I went with special walnut stain with a spar coating. 2 coats of spar after the regime of 80, 100,120,150 and 220 paper. 0000 steel wool between coats on the spar. I am proud of this chair. Is all pine as is the cheapest choice and easiest to get a hold of here in my little town of New Port Richey Florida :) I used poly the last few times prior and found it doesnt do as well in the weather so research led me to try the spar. Thanks for looking.
