November was a very busy month so work on a new Adirondack chair had to be set aside while orders got built and delivered. That made the few hours in the shop last Saturday to work on the templates for the new chair that much more enjoyable. A change of pace and a chance to relax a little.
So I printed out some patterns, taped them to whatever scraps of plywood or MDF I had laying around, then bandsawed out the rough shapes and finished up the edges on the bench with rasps and sandpaper. The pic above shows the current collection of templates for the new Adirondack chair and legrest. Just a few more templates to make and I’ll be able to get cracking on the prototypes.
It’s always nice to make a little progress. I’m hoping for a patch of calm water the next few days to get these puppies built, up on the website, and (maybe) out the door in the New Year.
You might notice that that there are some curves in the templates. Not a lot and not real pronounced. But they’re there. I’m hoping the new chair blends the straight line with the restrained curve in a pleasing way.
We’ll still be making the more complicated and curvaceous No. 124 Adirondack Chair. The new chair will be simpler to build but equally attractive; at least that’s the plan! We’ll see how it goes.
