    Modern Lounge Chair

    @gamiller3rd - I can appreciate that sentiment. I’m learning more about the importance of subtle angles and dimensions in chair making that tend to be less important in other furniture making.

    Modern Lounge Chair

    @Henry W - the domino figured heavily into the build for me. One variation I made from the original plans was to lap the legs and chair sides instead of using dominos. I added small dowels for design more than strength, as there’s a whole lot of face grain contact there. As @Jeff mentioned...

    "Refinish" for Outside Table

    My 2 cents - any wood outdoors will weather. UV is unstoppable. Many options for finishes, but they will all have to be redone at some interval (usually 1-2 years). As an option, have you considered leaving them as is? “Outdoor” woods (teak, ipe, cedar, cypress, etc) are going to last a very...

    From Colorado to Asheville

    Thanks for the welcome. The Rockies are beautiful, but not as accessible as the Appalachians. And because those are the ones I grew up spending summers exploring, they’ll always feel familiar to me. Look forward to checking out the WNCWA meetings!

    Filling large knot holes and voids

    For big voids, I like to use Rangate Knot Filler. It’s just so much quicker than epoxy. Quite a few color options to choose from - I stocked up on black. The product looks like a beefy hot glue stick (I use a cheap full sized hot glue gun instead of the gun they sell). Shoot it into the void...
