This is a chair that i rescued from becoming pocket change for my son and one of his friends.
He took the chair apart cleaned it up and put it back together He painted it and sprayed some of the poly on the seat. He done 99 percent of the work and you could tell by the look on his face that he was proud when he seen the seat sitting on it for the first time, I may get a working partner out of this project. Great time together.
I did not and don`t freely give my boys all their spending or running around money as they call it. I cant afford it, So after school they gather up scrap iron to sell. one night they came home and this chair was on the top of the pile. I decided I needed a chair to sit in around the shop. so i took it. Then I got Casey my son started on his first wood project, We gathered up some scrap cedar and ripped it into strips, then I showed him how to run them through the jointer with out getting his fingers removed. We cut and glued the strips in a stripe pattern sap wood and heart wood. He used the band saw to cut the seat out and the sander to smooth it up.
