Free DXF plans for wood Jigsaw puzzles of a lawnchair

I was looking through the internet for Free DXF plans and free DXF files for woodworking plans and found that it is easier to make my own from existing models that I have seen in real. The problem with the internet is that everyone says their woodworking plans are free but when you get to their page it seem you will have to buy something in order to get them. Well welcome to my free resources for hobby woodworkers and Free DXF plans that I have made myself for puzzles and wood crafts. Today I’m sharing my lawn chair which is a symbol of what I would rather be doing instead of working 😉 here it goes. Like I said I skewered the internet for models but ended up looking for pictures of lawn chairs that I could copy easily. I then reworked them in my Badog cnc software in order to make the following pictures for you to follow along.

            Every machinist knows that different kinds of the material have various cuts and applications. Not all plastics are the same, not all metals are the same and so forth. This applies to any type of material, including wood. Wood is one of the most common materials. Especially for hobbyists since most at-home CNC machines are CNC routers, which are generally used for woodworking more than anything else. Woods can be broken down into three major groups. Softwood, hardwood and man-made wood.

Wood jigsaw puzzle of chair and free dxf 2d puzzle

 This is the 4th model I have made this month and in staying with my dollhouse furniture theme I thought that I would make quickly a simple chair with the least amount of pieces(dxf 2d puzzle). With my Badog CNC i could actually do this in 3d but i enjoy wood jigsaw puzzles and 2d-puzzle more and i feel that they have a certain feel that is warmer and educational. The chair started as usual with a small sketch then we imported it into the Badog cad software interface to quickly vectorize it by tracing the lines from what i had drawn. Here is a shot of the interface of the software.
