Recognition: I first want to give thanks to Andy for sharing his cut List.
Pictured: Portable Folding Tall Chair, I created this chair from Alder as I’ve found Alder being a hard wood is very light and when toting things I like them light, it is finished in a single coat of Tung Oil and 2 coats of exterior Varnish. This chair will be a great asset for me during my shows.
Build: With my start of doing shows at market events and with my research, I found that a tall chair was recommend so as to put you in eye-to-eye contact with customers as they enter into your booth and these chairs aren’t easy to come by, thus my search here on LJ’s I discovered gfadvm, which has been so kind to us all had a cut list on this very chair, so with that, I took pencil to paper and made notes of the cut list also along with several PM’s to Andy and even a phone call :) even though I had made notes to the exact, I still found myself making many…. trips back and forth from the shop to the house as I needed to compare my construction with what Andy had pictured on the computer to make sure I was doing it right, Andy did an excellent job on the cut list and posting.
Though not perfect as there are mistakes, One thing that I missed was the head board, I over looked how Andy had it mounted and I didn’t allow quite enough clearances between woods on the folding as she’s a bit tight but I think over time it will loosen up.
Thanks for viewing and comments are always enjoyed.
