My attempt at a Greee & Greene style end table
My wife mentioned wanting a new end table and that she likes burls. I wanted to incorporate some aspects of the Greene & Greene style. Made this as her birthday present.

If you know anyone in Louisiana or SE Tx you can get this Cypress wood a lot cheaper.
These are Norm Abrams plans that I got from Rockler (I think) a few years ago.
I recommend if you do make these - that you make a template out of hardboard so you can more
easily make them over and over much easier.
There a few youtube videos that have the exact New Yankee Workshop video of how to make these
and this made the process much easier with some great tips.

Beautiful chairs! |
Where do you get your wood? Cost?
How much do Get from them on Craigslist?
I'd like to make other stuff out of Cypress... BUT can't find a SOURCE of it!!
Very nice work!! Quality work!

Just finished another set of Adirondack chairs
Built these using Cypress and put them on our local craigslist. I don't make much from
these but it helps cover the costs of the hobby...
This chair is made with thick 7/8" thick Cypress and stainless steel carriage bolts and stainless wood screws.
Finished with BLO and Johnsons paste wax.

In the shop again.
Got started early This morning before the heat set in. Am making legs for a coffee table & being very careful not to get any dust in my eyes Wearing goggles at all times. Using 5 x 2in Queensland Maple which is so soft & easy to cut/shave I should have them done in an hour or two.But the goggles don't keep the sweat from my eyes so I repair to the lounge room(air con) above my shop & will try again when it's cooler later on this afternoon.....To be continued.James jj777746
