« Part 9: Finishing the Build, but not Finished Part 10 of Building Dave's Stacking Chair series Part 11: Bonus Reel! »

[Legebla ankaĆ­ en Esperanto]

The only thing I had time to do yesterday was glue up the last seat back Yay! Part of what you see below was done Friday evening, the rest this afternoon.

[Below] The chair receives a treatment of Dark Cherry stain, both top and bottom. I knew these cheap foam brushes would come in handy.

[Below] After the excess stain is wiped off, the chair is ready for the lacquer.

[Below] I’m using a spray lacquer. It’s one of the reasons I prefer to do woodworking in the warmer weather (not winter). I can’t do much spraying inside my basement.

[Below] And here we are! A finished chair with the cushion installed. Next week I get to get the rest of them done in production like fashion. Then I’ll add a pic here of a few chairs stacked up.

Definitely so. Plus I got an order for two chairs exactly identical to these.

It’s very helpful that the paint is flat and that it takes stain!

Here’s a pic of the finished chair perched on a stack of 3 other incomplete chairs. Notice the chair parts filling up my work bench and the Mark III prototype in the background.

Well, it’s nice to see it finished—it looks great!

By the way, I love the special effects in your photos—looks like “Thing” from the Addams Family is doing the work!

I had fun doing the last few because you mentioned it. I guess this sort of format isn’t going to drive readers away.

OK OK I get the hint no more jokes about invisible workers.

The chairs look great and I guess its also good to be able to have the ability to have fun in the workplace and produce exceptional work as well.

So extent your right arm out palm up level with and at shoulder height and then swing back vigoursly several times from the elbow !

Looks great !!
