jody, seen any of this yet? its not anywhere near done, but most of the cuts are done, so next up is the align / glue / clamp phase. you can see that a number of the pieces need some flashing trimmed off, and the whole thing need lots and lots of sanding. also, right now, the compression rods are the only thing holding it together; they are also slightly skinnier than the final width (ie, the seat-to-back section still needs like 10 more), but the overall idea of the chair is there.
