The Oklahoma Walnut Dining Chairs
Made to go with the Draw Leaf table in my previous post
As with the table, all parts sanded to 150. Dyed with General finishes medium brown and top coat with Arm R Seal gloss.
The back slats are steam bent which was a new experience for me. The back legs are cut from a pattern. Although it would have been a lot more work, I am left wondering what they would be like if made of bent lamination. I wish I had paid a little more attention to the plans as they made the seat frame height at only 16” and I feel it should be at least 18”. Oh well, I will remember that if there is a next time. And while the plans use a shortcut to create angled tenons for the side rails of the seat frame, it leads to a tough glue up and next time I’ll likely just leave the seat frames square.
Thanks for looking!!
