New sun chair woodworking plan

Have fun building one of our themed sun chairs. We designed it for the porpoise that you can ease back and relax with a smile on your face. Make the tail stool as a slant for relaxation. Or build it with a flat top so you can stretch your legs straight out, or use as a side table. Full size drawings.

Spent part of the morning putting up the rafters and installing some of the uprights. Nursing a sore left elbow, not sure how that happened. Slowed up by that and the drill’s battery needing recharge every hour (only have one). Its all coming together pretty good. Did some quick measures for the glass roof. Gonna need 6 sheets of approximately 22 x 111 inches.

One of the purposes of the sunroom is to be able to enjoy the outdoors without being bothered by the bugs. Since the sunroom will be up against the siding there will be lots of gaps. I’m not keen on the idea of lots of and lots of silicone and caulking so this is my solution.
