Its still raining and tropical humidity, so worked on chairs. They are part of table and chair set for grandchildren. I did not like the straight back so I went on an adventure and cut a slightly curved back . Now figuring spindles or slats and how to attach them
Thanks Mike, The adventure continues, I found a bullet with my bandsaw that was on the same board that I found a nail with the planer .... But I did manage to get some slats on ! I fashioned a jig to hold the bottom rail to bore the mortises at a 10degree angle. and canted about the same to match the backrest top that is curved and slanted
Got the set built although its still tropical weather.....
This is white oak, the original idea I had was a formica top surface, but I thought I would try to see if I could do a solid top.
The top is 4 boards wide, I think it looks better, but wonder how durable it will be. I am now wondering about using an epoxy for the top. Question is how to apply something like glaze coat ? Looks like it requires something to dam or contain it? And will poly stick to it?
