It all started when a customer wanted a wooden sign for his business bigger than my scroll saw could reach. This "necessitated" the purchase of a jig saw, which "necessitated" the purchase of saw horses. But the ones at Home Depot were $19 A PIECE (that's the equivalent of 38 candy bars, for heaven's sake) and were kind of sad looking. So since I have an awesome cousin who gave me a bunch of scrap wood, I built these puppies for freeeeezies, which is a special feeling, Lloyd. (And PS--how liberating to be able to make signs as big as a house if needed...or I suppose as big as a sheet of plywood...reign it in, Sam.)
So I found these sweet-easy chair plans from ana-white.com (who is, no kidding, an inspiration), had long-lost Dane give me some drill tips for dummies (thanks, Dane; you're an inspiration, too), and got to work.
And a couple hours and only some mild frustration later, we have something that resembles a chair! And that jig saw came in handy in removing sharp-corner-eye-poking possibilities and adding sweet, sweet style to a square chair. (Also, forgive our super messy garage..we have yet to clean up after our wood install..)
PS--If you were wondering--amazingly comfy, it being made of wood and all...
