Not an easy build

I just completed my lounger using the templates and am happy with the results. However, the templates comes with no instructions, pictures, or measurements, so it is not an easy build. It would help if you have built a couple of Hal Taylor-designed rocking chairs, as some of his techniques can be used here. Fred Cory is right in that critical measurements are missing, and there are no rabbets/cushion instructions. Again, what you are buying are only the templates so you will need to muddle through as best you can. I did receive the following reply from Canadian Woodworks when I asked about the headrest. I wrote:

I tried to recreate the inside curve and the back feature (bulge) on a 2-inch thick piece of fir, a design feature that approaches that in the attached picture. (picture of lounger from the Maloof website). No matter how I try, my inside curve seems too shallow and my back feature lacks depth. Does the headrest require stock that is thicker than 8/4? I received the following answer:

The "trick" is cutting the curve, then taking the "off cut" and glueing it to the back side of the front curve. So with a single board, cut the curve in the middle of it, then glue the 2 flat sides together, basically creating a board that would be 4'' in thickness if you cut the front an back curves out of one piece.

Template seems to have the necessary parts

So far I have used the templates to cut jigs and that is straightforward enough. Some critical measurements seem to be missing though - the spacing from the front spreader to the center spreader, from the center spreader to the back spreader, and the spacing between the 2 spreaders for the back are not included. I think there is some additional imformation that would be very helpful - the rabbets for the cushions are not detailed. Pictures, diagrams or videos would be very useful.

Business is business

En achetant ce plan je savait qu'il n'y avait pas grand chose dessus (photo) mais en fait il n'y a que le contour sans autre note, rien.
Un support technique est vendu avec (email). Quand j'ai osé demander l'épaisseur du bois, j'ai reçu la douce réponse que je faisais comme je voulais !
Vraiment ultra light but business la business
