These chairs are my first real project. Lots of people want them so I just kept making them. The red & white ones are green treated wood w/ Thompson’s colored deck stain. The other ones are cedar. The first one I made I had to use a jigsaw to cut out the shapes, then I got a used Craftsman bandsaw and making them went much faster. I used stainless steel bolts, washers, and nuts. For the screws I just used premium deck screws.
All the roundovers really make me want a D-handle for my router. What’s a good place to buy one online? (for a porter cable 690)
The plans are from an old issue of Wood Magazine. I liked this fan-back style the best. I chose to leave the front of the arms square instead of rounding them.
