Frame made of 70yr old Lilac. Seat, back, seat and arms made of apple.
No screws or nails were used, its mortise and tenon for the frame with original gorilla glue.
The seat and back are joined with dowels, split and wedged with original gorilla glue again.
I do not use hardware at all in my rustic work its always gorilla glue, cant beat it for rustic! This chair was very unique, it was the first time I used Lilac. If you have never worked lilac before, beware it is extremely hard. Great looking wood though the purple colors in the scars is awesome. The apple is nice to work and brings a very nice red color. My primary tool for rustic is a “adjustable hollow auger” I use it for making all my tenons, its worth its weight in gold to me ! The seat slats are all cut on the bandsaw out of one log. The arms and back are ripped on the bandsaw as well.
The chair sits great too.
