This is my first one. Lots of errors. Happy with final product except the finish. I don’t know why my photos always post sideways sorry.

You should post it in the projects section. Looks good.

like the chair. Try turning you camera 90 degrees, that should help with the sideways post

Love the chair! If the photos are taken on an iPhone, you can remedy the sideways-ness of them by just cropping them the littlest bit on your phone.

I see so many pics taken on iPhones that get posted sideways on this site, I wonder if the caretakers could modify the orientation of iPhone pics by 90°.

I certainly like the look of it – how comfortable is it? Could you sit in it for 3 hours?

Nice! I thought whiskey barrel chair like those chairs from the 60s and 70s, not a nice Adirondack.

The chair is very comfortable. If you use a whiskey barrel it is extremely charred on the inside, so be prepared for LOTS of scraping and sanding. Perfection on these chairs is impossible so enjoy the uniqueness of each board… Of yeah LOTS OF CLAMPS. If you want to make more than one chair buy the extra barrels as soon as you can. I can’t make another chair because I can’t find another barrel.

You need to take a home course in coopering.
