Well I finally got the wife to allow me to get this playtoy. Now it's time to build them adirondack chairs. Speaking of them I was thinking of using red cedar 5/4 boards, now not knowing much about cedar any ideas or tips would be appreciated.
Cedar is a good choice, but it likes to split/crack real easy. Pre-drill fastener holes (including nails), and use stainless fasteners. Try to stay 2" from any end grain. Avoid glue because it locks the grain in place and makes cracking more likely. Hope this helps!
I know this is probably sacrilege, but I saw some beautiful adirondack chairs made out of the plastic wood used for decks. They looked great and were over 2 years old and were out side and still looked new. You can still use your new saw!
