One day I was siting at my computer playing Runescape when I heard a loud snap. I thought it was just something happening upstairs but then a minute later…the chair gave and I fell over.
Looking for a new project at the time, I decided to take on the challenge of angled mortise and tenons, and curved arms, both of which I had never even come close to trying. I hope to make a full chair someday and I thought this would be a good experience towards that goal. I figured I had seen enough project on LJs to figure out how to do it, and sure enough I was right…thanks for the help.
I think they turned out great. Unlike most of my other project I took a lot of time making sure I got the dimensions right. As you can see from the third pic it came out the same as the original…WOOT.
