The first time I built the Blacker side chair was as a companion for the first Aurora Pedestal Desk.
After first building the Blacker Rocking chair – the Blacker side chair seemed very simple.

Beautiful chair, Darrell. I think your Aurora style is my favorite. Are your back slats sawn or steam bent, in your chairs. Thanks for the post.

Hi Tenontim,
My back slats are made using the shaper

A great looking chair. I finally dug out your book. My wife had burried it on me. I must have left it out on a table at one time.

The furniture looks great. I love them.

Thanks for the info, Darrell. I don’t have a shaper, but do use patterns with my router table. I’ll have to make some patterns for some chair backs. I’m trying to get away from steam bending small parts, like chair backs, mainly because of the inconsistencies, ie spring back. Appreciate your help and for being part of Lumber Jocks.

Hi Tim,
I don’t think there is any method of making back splats that is without problems – with my method I sometimes get wood movement when the stress is relieved in a piece of wood. To hold pieces in my shaping jigs I started using vacuum clamping a couple of years ago.
