I attach photos of my Cape Cod Chair. Before and after painting (white with duck egg blue seat and back).
This is the most technically difficult wood working project I have undertaken and I had 1 or 2 head scratching moments. I started out with the version 1 of the plans which I had saved years ago (it took me about 8 years to finally pluck up the courage to attempt it) then realised that there are new instructions that are easier to follow.
It is built from '5th' planed 'Red Wood Pine', which I understand is scotch pine (not Sequoia!) which is readily available in the UK, cheapish and fairly durable but very heavy. I would have loved to have used cedar, but good cedar is expensive and difficult to obtain in the UK.
I had never used a table saw before and bought an extremely cheap and nasty one specifically for the project. I was worried about cutting the 32 degree angle on the arms but that worked reasonably well with new sharp hand saw and a bit of care.
Thanks for a great project.
