- Mar 28, 2013Hi all. The Tuam and Sligo Chair plans are from the known world archives. http://www.currentmiddleages.org/tents/toc.htm and http://www.currentmiddleages.org/tents/toc.htmThe Big difference is having the tools to do a proper job. and the Shopfox mortise machine is key.Prep is the word, Kiln Dried is the second word.There is a Lumber grade here in California that is California school certified, basically kiln dried, this wood goes for around $1.00 a foot. it is the greatest thing to work with. so flat that one pass on each side through the planer and it's ready to use..For the back I use a standard home depot 4x6 cut to 39 inches long. Plane it , Joint it. Then scribe the angle of the back onto the side of the 4x6, the same as you see on the plans. Again Tools, I use a Grizzly band saw with the extension block so i can rip and resaw up to 12 inches tall. to cut out the shape.I never worry about blade wobble or such, the blade adds to the medieval feeling, lol.I will scan my construction notes at some point, they are mainly scribbles on graph paper.Hope this helpsYoursMikeFrom: Thylacine <thylacine@...>
