Today my dad and I decided to complete a project
that we were supposed to do
Christmas before last.
(We got rained out for the second day in a row for bass fishing.)
I had seen this
and decided that I had to make one/some
and the only place I could do that was in
NC, since I do not have a wood shop
and old wood lying
around in NYC.
So we took the scraps above,
followed some vague
and got to work....
Part by part, it started to come together.
Rather quickly we had this....
And then a chair was born....
We made a few modifications, such as the beer
shelf in the back.
Pops tests it out.
Hauling it back to the house to show the girls.
(My dad built the "barn" in the back himself.)
Here are the beauty shots....
We added a 3rd slat in the back for comfort.
(I think it looks better too,
but it does get away from the
3 sizes of wood concept.)
It kinda looks like Rietveld and Prouvé
had a country baby.
I think the beer shelf is a nice touch....
This wood is all left over siding from my parents house.
