This is my last proof of concept/prototype. From here on it’ll be a build and the project entry will be a tutorial. As you see I threw some stain on it to get a good idea on how it will look. (Dark colors are slimming, no?) I used the same stain as the table the chairs are destined for. This last chair is held together exclusively by screws, screws and more screws, highly visible screws! The production model will be glued with hidden screws for peace of mind. The plan is to take this one apart and use the pieces as patterns. I’m going to create a jig for the legs since I have to make 10 of these over time. I think a jig will be worth it. The jig in itself might be an entry here. Having made 3 of these, I believe I also know the best way to assemble it (I E order of steps.) With the cushion, the chair feels fine. Being of pine wood it’s light and easy to move. I think it looks like more than just a bunch of wood stuck together. Now I just need to accrue the funds to buy the wood. I’ll likely make these chairs in pairs or triples, since I get 1-1/2 basic chair parts from 1 1×12x8foot board. The backs and seats are plywood. That’s a different story.
