Your garage must have smelled awesome while you were working on that lounger. I love the smell of cedar. Also, although I'm sure those scrapes look worse in person, they do add a bit of character to the table. \:\)

Thanks all and yes, the smell of cedar in the garage was indeed awesome.

Mark,
My plan, so to speak, was a chair that we already owned for a couple of years and a tape measure. I'm pretty sure I could clean up all my scribblings over several sheets of scrap cardboard into something that might make sense to others, if you are interested.

Thank you for the offer, but it was really curiosity.

We have some wetlands in the backyard and if I were to ever try to enjoy myself by sitting out there unprotected, I'd be bitten head-to-toe by mosquitoes.

So, yes, to beat everyone to the punch: I wear a condom when I'm out there so I won't be unprotected.

We have a screened porch which works just dandy for me, but a lounger like that would take up too much space.

Well, that could have been more fun.

Eagerly awaiting Mark's 6,000th post.

Some people love getting the latest gadgets to help them do their work more efficiently. Others, like the guy I'm linking to below, do things by hand just to hone their skills.

Whoa. I wouldn't have the patience or skill to do the first set of dovetails without a more 'automated' jig. Much less cut it up and cut dovetails in my dovetails.

Loc: It's all about the location.
I was surprised he didn't use a dovetail saw to make the side cuts on the joint, then go to a fret saw to cut the bottom.
