“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

My latest wood-working product

Posting has been light lately because I'm kind of tired of politics. I'll get back to it but in the mean time, here are a couple of pics of my latest shop piece. This is a chair I made from reclaimed oak pallets and planks I helped cut on a peckerwood saw mill in a friend's back yard. 

The design is based on chairs created by my current favorite furniture designer, Brazilian Carlos Motta. Click on the picture and you can see the sawmill blade marks I left on the wood. Pretty cool. I just need to get the custom cushions and it'll be finished.

Ed, I love it! Nice job. It looks HEAVY? Is it? Do you sell them? If so, how much?

Ed said...

Yeah, it's probably 40-50lbs. Solid oak. When I get the custom cushions in I'll probably list it on Craig's List for I don't know $300 and see what I get. If it sells quickly, I'll probably raise the price of the next one.
