First and foremost I must thank those who have gone before me. Those who provided the inspiration, tips , helpful suggestions and knowledge that helped to make the first 2 builds possible and enjoyable. Grampa Doddie. Your blog was inspiration personified. I read and re read your chapters over and over. You spelled out the steps to such detail, and for the answers to my P/M’s I thank you. Pintodeluxe, AandCstyle, again thank you for your input and for answering my P/M’s. Your tips and suggestions were always on the money. I’m going to try my hand at starting a blog. This will be a first, so please bear with me. The thought was I’d like to be able to give something back to anyone who is considering a project like this. So here we go. Originally I was going to make 6 chairs, But after a bit of a conference with the Mrs. I/we decided what the heck and upped it to 8. Way back at the end of last Nov. when I started the 1st chair I questioned the use of 1 1/8” material for the side,front and back rails. and was going to go with 4/4 and run it once thru the planer. With some input from several LJ’s I made the correct decision and went with the wider stock as per plan. I was pretty sure this build was a go, so at that time I picked up enough 6/4 Cherry to build rails for all 8. So now it March. I guess it’s time to get goin’.
