These are loosely based on an Internet plan which I altered in a number of fundamental ways.
The first chair I made last year (as a present for a friend) and although comfortable I wasn’t completely happy with the bolts through the legs nor the way the arms were jointed to the upper back support rail. On the pair of chairs I’ve made this year I’ve done away with the leg bolts and redsigned the arm/back rail with hidden fittings.
On all three chairs the seat slats are recessed below the chair sides to hide the end grain and attached with screws from underneath. All other visible screws are recessed and plugged.
The first chair is european brown oak whilst the second pair of chairs are western red cedar. I plan to suppliment this years cedar chairs with two ottomans in a similar style.
