    Fantastic Mark thanks for all the pointers. There wont be any weather getting at the walls but it will be sat on a concrete floor that is without insulation or dpm under it so yes i think your suggestions will be needed. Cheers

    Thanks guys, will do some photos and updates as I go along.

    Mark, thanks very much for the info. Never heard of Celcon blocks. Had thought of using thermalites. Are they at all similar? Good call on the ventilation suggestions, will certainly put some vents in and I like the idea of standing on ply instead of concrete.

    I think the spoon making addiction is treatable but dont go cold turkey all on your own!

    Seriously, nice work!

    Hi Ron

    I’m no expert on finishing but I would have thought that a coat of something clear added after the “girly” designs have been added would be a good idea for extra protection of the designs. All I would say is that it would be good to check compatibility of the clear coat with yout enamels (perhaps do a test) and also that your white enamel may be made to look a little off-white by certain “clear” coats so be careful if that would be a problem. Hope that helps.

    I recently glued up some boards and found the bond had failed the next day. When I took them apart the PVA glue appeared to have frozen before bonding but the conditions were quite extreme, in the order of -7 degrees C.

    Hi Everyone

    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!
