    I have one and its a good saw.

    For a few dollars more, this might be an option. Included 2 5.0A batteries. If you already have them, it never hurts to have more than one drill/driver.

    Finish for cypress

    I'm making several deck chairs of cypress that will be under cover and out of the weather.

    So far, all I've tested is Waterlox, and it looks good. But I've thought about Osmo and Danish oil.

    I start by adjusting the stand so the wheel is centered on the bevel, and I grind until there's about 1/16" to the edge.

    That's my "secondary bevel".

    If you grind to the edge with a stone you...

    Thanks Mark. I couldn't find any full size plans, so I made my own. And yeah, I cut the angles the wrong way on the vertical supports.:confused:

    I'm having some trouble getting the back slats to lie flat on the vertical supports. It seems the angle needs to be steeper. I need to keep playing with it I guess.

    Main main question right now...
  6. Anyone build the Fortune garden chair?

    I've made all the parts according to the templates and double checked everything but when I mocked it up the geometry seems off.

    A Worksharp wouldn't make much noise.

    How far off is the primary bevel?

    As mentioned, sandpaper is probably the best option. A piece of melamine is good enough.

    Is the wood punky? I had something similar with a maple log I let go too long. Massive amount of figure but the wood was like wet paper. I ended up burning it.

    I would sand it and reapply a waterborne finish. No power sanders - do it by hand 320 grit & very careful around edges.

    I sealed this one with a tinted shellac (sprayed), then applied ArmRSeal. I despise BLO b/c of the smell and drying time.

    Same here. Often I clean up the edge with a hand plane. But it depends on how bad the saw marks are.

    Shop vacs are just that - vacuums, meaning high suction/low CFM. So they don't work very well for table saws, or any machine with a cabinet (jointer, router table).

    I would run 3 ribs the full length, and cross ribs every 12" or so. This also gives you enough room for the air nailer.
