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.

As I had stated earlier I had planned to add arms to the 2 larger chairs. I looked around a bit and found a design I liked and drew it out on a piece of 1/8 fibre board to make the patterns. I used 4 pieces of 6/4 stock for the braces and 4/4 f...
On to the corner brackets. I realize all the corners were supposed to be 4.5° off 90 but thought it prudent to measure and check the angle before I cut up a whole bunch of stock (measure twice cut once). Drill some holes. And it should ...
I ripped all my stock for the side and cross stretchers as per drawing, but I chose to go with a straight half lap joint as opposed to the dove tail simply because it’s easier.Because there is a compound angle on the back of the side stretcher and...
