Great chair, nice work..how did you decide how to fan the back like that? Is there a special magic trick?

DanI can’t take credit for the design, I found it in a back issue of WOOD (issue 149 June/July 2003), I was surprised to see how easy it was, each of the back boards was cut to a 2” to 4 3/6” taper on a 27” long board and then laid out on the bench with 3/8 spacers between them with the first spacer in the center , then you tape them together w/ masking tape so that they don’t move, measure up from the bottem 6 1/2” and mark out a 19 3/4” raduis then cut them on the band saw and sanded, i used the spacers again when assembling. I also made templates of all the odd shaped pieces for future chairs and it save a lot of layout time on the next one (well worth the time if you plan on make several) I have already had request for them.
