Wow this a great thread and I agree with the response’s especially Gregory’s. I to am fairly new to hand tools myself and learning has been a blast, but have a long way’s to go. I have been following Paul’s blog and am building his style of bench as we speak. I like Paul’s style and his no nonsense approach to wood working. But I am not sure if my confident level is there yet for a chair build although I have all ways wanted to make a rocker so am looking forward to this but not sure if I have enough experience. Anyway’s I have Paul’s book and love it and now with the video’s this is great. I would love to attend one of his classes but that is out of reach for me so this is the next best thing. Keep up the good work and looking forward to more projects.

If you can post the tools required for the chair project, and about how much wood (board thickness, board lengths, wood type recommendations, etc) I/we could get a head start on getting the materials together. I’ve avoided chair projects so I’m looking forward to a step-by-step…
For what its worth I’m in the “Cant wait to get started on the chair” camp. Yes it might sound like a bit of a challenge but hey what’s the worst thing that can happen? You might know yourself that a couple of the joints aren’t quite perfect but when everyone else goes WOW when they see it you’ll be pleased as punch. Lets all live dangerously and go for it!
