Finished 1 of my chairs!

I had a little trouble with the square plugs breaking when inserting and I believe they took me the longest to make. These chairs started at 8/4 cypress with purple heart plugs. I finished with a seal coat of shellac and covered with 2 coats of (50%) thinned epifanes clear.

Thanks for the build Marc - it was very rewarding!

Rob, I recently joined the Guild, and picked the adirondac chair as my 'archive' project. I had figured to depart from the G&G style a bit, since I want to use cypress. Your chair looks so good in cypress, I may just change my mind!

Nice job.  I like the grain orientation on the seat back.  Very balanced and harmonious.

Hope he's still a member as the op was in 2011. If, great job. I like the arm detail!

Probably not as he hasn't been on since March of 2012
