And the rest…

[Below] One of the chairs (only one!) had back legs that curved slightly inward. This prevented it from stacking on top of the other chairs. I made a spacer and wet the legs to try and curve them outwards. It worked! Here I am repeating the process, adding a washer at the end of the spacer stick to try and open it up a bit more.

[Below] The other 5 remaining chairs having been sanded and ready for staining. Somehow the center of gravity is such that 6 chairs stacked like this won’t quite tip over. I’ll recommend to the church that 4 per stack is adequate.

[Below] This is the material I need for my paying job: two 1”x 12”x 8’ one 1/4” luan plywood 24”x 48” and one 1/2” 24”x 48” plywood sheet. That plus glue and a few screws and dowels makes 3 chairs. The order is only for two chairs. I’m holding onto the extra wood once I cut it in case she wants more chairs. Otherwise I’ll build the extra one and give it to the church as well.

I got the chairs stained and lacquered and delivered to the church. That sure feels good! They do look nicer than the old folding chairs around that conference table.

Not sure exactly what to do with this, but here’s a photo of the chairs around the table I built.
