I took a break from my projects to start to knock together a 2 seater Adirondack 2 seater swing for a friend. It’s a birthday present for his wife. I’ve built a few chairs so not too worried. The hardest part is getting the gentle curve of the seat supports cut and smooth. The plan I’m following is no help in how to lay it out other than saying use a 2 inch grid. Great.
But I’m a handtool woodworker and I was up to the challenge. I laid out the grid then used a 1×4 cutoff to eyeball and step off the curve. It didn’t take me long to think of this either, I think I’m most proud of that. The 1x4s will be laid perpendicular to the seat supports so this was the best way I could think tp do it and make sire the slats sat fairly flat on a curve.
When I got close I switched to the spokeshave. After I finished one, I used it as a template amd worked the remaining two down until the curves all matched. I’m pretty happy, this only took me about an hour. I must be getting a little better, lol.
Thanks for reading.
