jpusmc56 says:

Can you please do a review on your new jointer. I have been looking into getting one, and have considered that exact model but there is a lack of thorough reviews on it. Would like to hear your take on it and how it may stack up to some of the higher priced ones.

Hey that’s a cool looking chair. Simple, but very cool. I dig the stain. I think you can get away with any stain really. The design will allow it. Thanks for the easy to follow build.

David McGinn says:

david sykes says:

This is a great video. I love the chair, can’t wait to make a couple for the backyard. Have you tried using structural screws instead of lag bolt?

Peter Sommers says:

Nice video and good looking chair! Lovely family 🙂

Jhon Thula says:

Great stuff… thanks so much.
I already made my bed based on the your “temporary” bed design… I am pretty sure I will make these too for my deck (after refinishing the deck with I am not looking forward to hahaha)

Vincent Wolfe says:

Excellent as always. To improve the strength of the lag bolts, consider using a dowel insert perpendicular to the wood grain, giving the threads something more solid to grab into.

Tyler Scow says:

Lispy lisp

Leo K says:

Stuart Crisp says:

Nice job. Colour depends on where it is placed, but for outside, too light might be better than too dark.

One small caution about cushions though – I made a whole lounge suite many years ago and the cushions cost me four times what the wood cost! I hope you have better access to affordable cushions than I had then.
