Templates were easy to use and arrived in good condition!

Great Support

Just finished the final finishing coat of the first chair (5 more to go).

The patterns worked great and the enclosed instructions were a good reference, although I made some modifications to the process based on experience and shop setup. The video that is available on UTube was a good reference for some of the trickier work.

I had one question and Paul replied back to me within 24 hours. Overall a great experience!

Lemiski Additions

Great addition to the rocking chair a touch of style thank you so much.
Would like to see you put all your templates out with laser cut plywood option.

Guitar Pick Template

Had a blast building. The build could have been easier with a written cut list for wood and sizes. The video was great but for beginners we could use better instructions on the maloof joint and measuring. I have already started a second stool to correct mistakes. Thank you!!!

Plantillas de gran utilidad

solo me gustaria saber mas a detalle el angulo de la articulaciòn de patas y respaldo, todo lo demas OK, muchas gracias por el envio oportuno. saludos

Excellent Craftsman Ship & Customer Service

The owners of this business take special care of every piece they produce. We gifted some items to high end clients, and the feedback was incredible. We will be ordering more!

As described.

Plans as described. It would have been nice to have the pdf”s full size so they could be simply printed and assembled. Not a major issue but and inconvenience.

I haven’t started the course yet but I’m very excited to be able to make an epoxy coffee table. Thank you very much Paul for opening up course for an additional walnut table

Haven't done course yet

I haven’t taken the course yet

Great Experience

I would highly recommend this workshop. Wow, what a excellent workshop, the information was given with lots of personnel experience, good and bad. I had never worked with epoxy before and was all new to me. My wife was amazed at the quality of the finished product, she wants you to do another workshop to make some matching end tables. I do wish there was some info on the products we used, maybe a take home printout, my memory isn't what it used to be. Ha ha !!! Thanks again. Ken

Low back chair

I am involved in another project and have not printed out the pdf you sent. I looks great and cannot wait to print it out for this weekend.

Documentation I was looking for

Templates look good. Printed them out. Still need to past together and transfer to plywood. Looking forward to building a prototype. Need to finish Dining Chair #8 first, then I'll decide which I like best and build a full set of four. Thaks for all your help.

Dining Chair no.8 - Templates

Great detail. Thanks Started with Guitar pick stool first. Now moving on to the chair

Nice templates, immediately shipped

This was a 2 x 4 sheet of templates meant to compliment the Hal Taylor build package and were just what I expected. There are no instructions but if you’ve gone through Hal Taylor’s videos it seems easy to figure these out. These give you Mr Lemiski’s stylish flair to Hal’s chair and give the headrest and rockers a bit more of a Maloof look.


Our second rocker…just wonderful.

My confirming email on the order said I would get a follow up email with information on tracking my orders and a link to the video on building the chair? I did not receive the email....


Dining Chair 8 templates

1) Chair design is fair, consider softening curves and edges. Could be a bit more organic, sensual design.
2) It would be very useful to have plans available in CAD format, not hand sketches. If I use them, I will re-draw in CAD and program for CNC router machine.

Good Templates

Good templates, had a few challenges getting them to print correctly. Once saved and opened in .pdf it was perfect.

template drawings look good, but.

I can't find a reference on the plans about the thickness of the timber . Could you please email me the answer, I emailed you a request for this but have yet to receive a reply

Dining Chair no.8 - Templates

Plans are just what I expected - ready to make some dust

Poor building plans

The paper templates look okay, but the step by step manual promised is really poor. They should look at Hal Taylor's building plans again (I know they are familiar with his plans because they mentioned him in their YouTube video). This project in in que and I haven't started building and won't for some time. I like the appearance of the chair which is why I bought the plans, but am extremely disappointed in the proffered instruction manual, thus the two star rating.

Poor construction manuals

The chair part plans look okay, I haven't attempted to start building yet, multiple items in que before I start on the chairs. But the "How to build" instructions are almost worthless. They should take a hint from Hall Taylor, with whom I know they are familiar, and write out more comprehensive "how to" methods and instructions.

Stool suggestion

Pattern is real nice but could use a good bit more guidance on how to cut out and assemble.
