Progress on the cypress chairs: Shouldn't be too long before I'm ready to start gluing things together..... on 4 chairs only. I haven't been working on the 5th chair. I still need to make 2 sets of arms for the captain's chairs.
Knowing the weakness of cypress, i.e., generally not the best wood for chairs, I don't trust the seat stability (splitting down the middle), so I installed a 17"L X 3"W X 1/2"D dutchman on each bottom-side of the seats.
Picked up two 7" Wilton vises at a garage sale, $5 for the pair. A bit rusty, but functional. I had them sand blasted - $20. They'll go to a nephew (budding woodworker?).
Haven't been in the shop too much, lately. Been watching the Bruins, Celtics and Pelicans.
