« Part 17: Horizontal router mount, quick and dirty Part 18 of methods of work series Part 19: Chair prototype #2 - all the tricky stuff is done. »

A couple of previous blog entries showed the steam bending
setups I used to bend the rail and legs.

Mortises were cut with a slot mortiser and tenons were done
on a Wirth Machine (Matchmaker).

Looks nice and simple as long as I do not have to do it. Will wait patiently for the completed chair. Thank
you for sharing.

Really nice chair Loren. Is this going to be part of a set, or a solo?

It looks like your wood is all warped Loren! Ok, just kidding. It looks great so far. Chair making is a challenge and It looks like you are up to it. Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Oh, it’s a prototype for me to learn from.

I’m developing a line of chairs.

Is that a typesetters case behind the chair?

I bought a double row one to get the drawers for
shadow boxes and cut down the case. Heresy,
I know.
