Here’s a chair project I recently completed. It’s my rendition of a chair I saw in Fine Woodworking Magazine a few years ago. Built completely from 12/4 cherry, assembled using loose tenon joinery.
Basically, I roughed out the pieces on the bandsaw, assembled it and shaped the curves with a angle grinder with a flap sander attachment. Rasps, files and lots of sandpaper followed. The finish is danish oil and wax.
Believe it or not the hardest thing was the upholstery. I have no experience in this department and got my wife to help out. She did a great job putting her sewing (quilting) skills to work. The only thing I regret is not making an ottoman while I was at it. I have the material, but just don’t see myself getting to that project.
This has made a great addition to our finished basement.
Thanks for looking!
