These dining room chairs were a commission from a client in Georgia (the state not the country, that would have been a huge shipping bill) They are made from walnut with curly maple and curly cherry backslat bent lamination’s. They have upholstered seats and plastic floor glides to protect the flooring. They were made in my “Chester” style with a bit of a change to the backrest. The customer is having a dining table built to accompany them. From what I have seen so far it is going to be wild and go with the chairs. It is being produced by Steve Defenbaugh from Plane & Square Woodworking in Snellville Georgia.
I built seven of the chairs, six for the customer and one for me to use as a gallery example.
I don’t have a photography studio so I improvise with a curtain dropped from my shop ceiling. So you will have to excuse the photos, I will touch them up later in photoshop to remove any tools that poke into the shots. ;)
If you haven’t seen it I made a youtube video about the making of the chairs. They were pretty complex so there will be three parts to it. This is just part one.
I also made one about the bent lamination backslats.
Thanks for reading and watching.
