I started with the same scenario as the rear legs, ¼” piece of Walnut sandwiched between 2 layers of dressed Cherry. I had previously ripped the pieces to 1 ¾” wide. Ripped to final width of just a bit over 1 ½ sq. I left it just a tad over so ...

Just started WW again after a 20+ yr absence.
As such, I'm trying to take over our single car garage. I have a 4000W electric box heater to keep off the chills. I sold the old Rockwell 9" and got a new General Table saw. A bit of over kill, but it's sure nice to have a quality machine.
Hobbies: Some camping, motorcycles, real bar b que.

I picked up 6- 8’ x 4/4 Cherry boards That I cut in half and 3 Walnut 4/4 shorts (5’) Way back in Dec. I made the templates for the rear legs from ¼” plywood. I thought this might stand up better than fiberboard. Next up was to slice the 4...
The crest and lower back rail were to be from 1 7/8” stock. As I didn’t want to shell out for 8/4 stock I ran 2 pieces of 4/4 through the planer to get a nice smooth surface then glued them up. The jury is still out on whether ...
As previously stated I had picked up 3- 6/4 Cherry boards to use for the lower rails. After running them through the planner to knock them down to 1 1/8”. I ripped enough of the material to 3” to make all the rails. These I marked wi...
