« Part 1: finally started the last project Part 2 of Chair for the study desk unit for my son series Part 3: Day 4 and 5, Seat and legs. »

Now I am already worried about using rustic logs for the chair… The logs are pretty much straight, I thought. But actually not, not at all. So for the 2 legs, the point where they attach the seat are not the same. The right one will be about 15 mm forward.

But I started, and that was the original idea…

Mortise and tenon are different from what I usually do, but it’s got to be good and tight one, need to make it strong. For mortises, it was an easy part. Just cut squares out from the seat. Made them 20 mm width.
Then I drew a line 460 mm away from a side on my workbench (which is the actual hight ofd the seat), then I put one leg fitting the bottom to the side. Then made straight slit with router using the line I drew, make it the same as the depth of the seat.

Didn’t have much time, so this is what I could have done on Day 3.

Hey Junji, Interesting concept….can’t wait to see how it turns out. Looks like you may have a little moisture in the garage there.

Don,

moisture? You mean the floor of the left side looks wet? Actually that is outside of the garage/shop, and it was raining.
Or you mean the climate of the country? Oh it’s really humid not as dry as yours…

Jim,
Maybe I tried too much to make it unique? I don’t know yet.

Yes Junji, I was referring to the moisture on the floor. Glad it is outside!
