We decided to take a chair that is well known for comfort, relaxation and traditional adirondack design and get outside the box. Our creation is a version that is easier to get in and out of. To add some character we put some playful curves and "Rolled" the arms to increase the comfort. A similar version of this chair can be seen in the April issue of Fine Woodworking magazine appropriately called "Adirondack with a Twist." The back of our chair will be a bit taller and to make the chair easier to get out of the seat will also be higher. The wide curved arms make a fantastic visual statement as well as provide structural integrity. They are made from eight, 1/8" thick laminations and this adds the final touches to a uniquely elegant chair.

Tools Required: None
Description: You have this itch to work with your hands. You just retired and are ready to dive headfirst into your long awaited hobby. Once you buy the first tool, the process begins of organizing, reorganizing and adding more and more tools to the mix. So where do you start? Shop Planning and Layout are two of the most important issues to consider but in most cases put on the back burner until your makeshift shop becomes gridlock. In another one of our classes in the lecture series we help you ask the questions and then provide you with some viable answers. What are things to consider when planning, building or remodeling for a home woodworking space? We will cover topics ranging from layout, materials, material flow, safety, future expansion, electrical, plumbing, windows, insulation, security, site location/selection and HVAC as well as dust extraction/collection. Even with limited space or shared space in the garage, how can I make it more efficient? Is my woodworking limited due to space? This discussion focused class will give insight and perspective when planning your new adventure. Save yourself TIME and MONEY by doing your homework before you begin building or expanding your shop idea.
