How I spent my vacation

Darrin's Chair

This is what I built on my recent vacation. I found the plans on the web and you can access them below. The chair could even be built by a complete neophyte like myself, to pretty good effect. The downside is, given the cost of materials and tools (bought myself a router!) and even putting a nominal value on my time, this is certainly the most expensive chair I've ever owned. But, it was a lot of fun.

Oh, and I do realize that pine is not the best choice, expecially from the perspective of being knot-free. But, it was the most cost effective choice for the first piece of wood furniture I've ever built.
