no previous part Part 1 of Chair for the study desk unit for my son series Part 2: day 3, attaching seat to the legs »

So this will be the last project of “study desk unit for my son”.

I have been thinking about this ever since I started this while project, but the other day somebody here is LJ introduced me the projects of Nakashima, so I decided to go with that taste. (thank you Todd and one.hit.wonder)

So here is the plan, kind of easy one as always.

From woodworking

I am not sure about the extra support legs, I know it will be much cooler without them, but I have to make it strong, so I will see when I make it without it first.

And just started work in the shop.
On the first day, peeled off the skin of cherry log, which will be the main 2 legs. And glued 2 pieces for the seat.

And 2nd day, made some pieces, tenons and mortise. I chose to use cherry logs for the legs, but it’s just tricky, because they are not straight. It took me a while to figure out to decide which way to use them.

The hardest part for this particular chair is, the width. I have only 36cm (14inches) space to put this chair in the desk space. It’s a bit skinny for a chair, but I have to do that!

Hey Junji,

If it was easy, everyone would be doing it! Keep working at it! I’m sure it will be original Junji, maybe inspired by Nakashima, but Junji all the way. I too am working on a chair. It is a folding chair used in the 18 century in military camps. I am using Jarrah and it will have a leather upholstered seat. Keep us posted on your progress.

Don,
Thank you for your words. I know, I know, it’s going to be very difficult, that is the fun part, too. Maybe I fail to make it all the way, but I am sure there are a lot to learn anyway from it.

Don,
I thought I could see your progress of your chair in your blog… OK, I am looking forward to seeing your chair when it’s done, maybe.
