This is my first attempt at trying to make a log chair. I had very limited tools available to help in this project, hence some of the cuts you’ll notice. The only power tool used was a dremel, hammer and a hand saw. I must say it turned out better than expected. Next time I will certainly do some things a little different but for my go, not bad. Wood: the frame is red oak and I believe the seat is from a pignut hickory tree. Total cost…$25 (sand paper and wood oil.)

Well I like it. You deserve to go out and buy yourself some more tools. A draw knife is nice to add to your arsenal. I like the powered one’s…..............

This would be great for sitting out in front of the cabin at the lake! Very cool!

@Von
I wish I had one too! Would have made this much easier. Or even a Lathe would have been nice.

Thanks!

Pretty impressive with limited hand tools. You obviously took your time to get everything as nice and even as yo did.
