After a couple other projects, finally getting around to building 8 of the Garden Chair’s from FW magazine. They will be the matching set around the fire table I built earlier. Same wood, African Mahogany

I just love this chair!

Getting the forms built was pretty straight forward. I couldn’t get 1/2 ply to bend around the severe curve for the legs, so had to use 2 1/8 pieces of hardboard instead.

Now, lots of resawing. Very glad I upgraded to the Laguna 18”!

First leg glue up. Had to go get more clamps after the dry run.

Stay tuned

I also love the appearance of that chair but yours looks a little unfinished for a finished project.

What a beautiful chair and it displays a lot of nice details and craftsmanship.

Ha! I’m building this chair as well. I’ve just finished the laminations and am now on to the solid wood pieces. After tightening all those clamps, I could barely pick up a glass of water! What a work out.

Good luck!

Looks like a fun project. Did you consider blogging the build?

Blast!! I was not thinking when I did this as a “project”. Moving to a blog (just have to figure out how to delete this project)
