I completed these pair of staked chairs (from Chris Schwarz – Design Anarchist Book) in April of 2017. The chairs were build to be used at the cherry library desk I built last year.

The chairs are built out different wood species (basically what I had laying around). The seats are poplar, the legs are ash, the spindles are red oak and the crest rail is white oak.

The finish is two coats of black milk paint, 2 coats of boiled linseed oil and 1 coat of past wax.

Like many woodworkers I have been afraid of making chairs, but these chairs are surprisingly easy to make.

Thanks,

Luis Martinez

A lovely set of cahirs. Your finishing looks more like a dye than paint. Great.
The design is good as well. Would you recomend to buy the book?

kaerlighedsbamsen, I highly recommend the Anarchist Design book and any other book written by Chris Schwarz. I really like his writing style.
