It is really a big job to do a chair.. I want to prove myself in the past that I could make a dining set. I was just starting my woodwork that time using pines form the crates. I have less tools. I manually planed, made mortise and tenons by hand, and use spokeshaves. I made 4 pieces of this chair.

Presently, the 4 chairs have been in good condition and being used at home. Most visitors are amazed that I was the one who made it. It looks ordinary that you could buy from department store. But the more they become surprise when they know it is from crates and pines.

By the way, it has a table, but had a big crack on the top. Maybe it will be good on the blog….

Looks like a good sturdy chair Bert . I think a blog would be a great idea.

Good looking chairs. I think it is great that you use recycled wood and hand tools.

-- You will never build it unless you try. The second one always turns out better.

Chairs are much more complex. They have many compond angles. There are a few people on LJ’s that are doing art chairs, and reproductions. It is my understanding there are many great woods to work with in the Philipines?
