OK, not nearly so sweet at GarageWoodWorks chest and not such a catchy
(misleading) title, but maybe some interest from the group. See them
This is rustic work, not fine furniture.
I built these from Western Red Cedar. I have the mill resaw 2x4's and
2x6's and I have to do right and left parts so I get smooth side up. I
built a huge pile of assembly, shaping and drilling fixtures and I
have the labor time down to less than an hour for the chairs and under
30 minutes each for all the other componets (tables, and footstools).
I did a run of 30 chairs and associated tables, etc. I placed them in
a few local nurserys but it is a bit late this season so haven't
actually sold much.
I have some re-engineering to do but luckily the assembly fixtures are
all adjustable so I can adjust them to fit the imporved designs. I
just need to add some overhang at the slats to the supports so the
stapler won't chip out. You can see it on the footstool. I adjusted
the stapler depth and that fixed it a bit but not good enough. I also
need to make the arm\leg\gusset connection stronger. If you have
trouble with assembly, end users could snap it.
I hope to market the heck out of these starting early next year and
try to bank enough orders to rent a shop and hire some temp help.
