I was commissioned by an auto parts warehouse to build this throne for their annual Christmas party. I haven’t a clue what style this is but it’s based loosely on their previous chair with the curves simplified so I can sand and route them properly since I do not have a spindle sander. I was commissioned because they had a bad experience with a rented prop chair that was way too flimsy, this will not happen on my watch. I used two sheets of plywood in the construction of this chair. The front legs are country kitchen table legs turned upside down and attached at the front with some dowel joints to the rail underneath which is made from 1” thick red oak and behind the legs are some laminated pieced of white oak to reinforce the corners. The back is held on with three layers of plywood to make very sure that it will not break for a very long time. The arms are held on with dowels as well to make very sure they do not break loose. The upholstery is made so it can easily be removed for cleaning and replacing the cloth when it eventually wears out.
