Interesting. I made one somewhat similar awhile back. Except instead of a CNC I used a yardstick, pencil, jig saw, and glue. Turned out pretty nice, but later I cut the back off and now am using the seat as a small, and short, bench, Like it much better as a bench. Oh yeah, no plans, just Zen woodworking.

Those old grid-ed drawings bring back bad memories of trying to copy the half scale plans and scale them up when I was a kid. I never quite got the exact curves, regardless of how easy the instructions made it sound.

Looks like you have some guitar templates in the background as well...

You followed the instructions? I never had problems, the few times I did that. Just made a grid of the size I wanted to use, then sketched in the lines from the original grid. Had to redraw some lines, but the end result always came out to scale.

Sometimes used to draw a grid, usually 1/4", on a picture I wanted to copy. Then a grid the size I was going for, on plywood, and the same procedure. Once blew up a 2" picture to 48" that way, came out quite nice.

Very cool chair! Reminds me of growing up.

And I like that cutting board.

Another high quality tutorial, Stan. And I like the 3 leg approach. Much less of hanging up your feet when you sit down and get up. Thanks.

asking about electric guitars

I really liked doing electric guitars , the files were good and produce exact fittng guitars but there was no interest , china sells blanks for 25.00 I could not compete, I even have solid maple 18.75 wide by 2in thick lumber about 14 feet, just sitting. Takes a bit over 1 hr to machine one out
