After seeing Rowdy’s “Z” chair http://lumberjocks.com/projects/33945 and commenting that I wanted to make one, I sort of did. I have seen the “Z” chair on the Kehoe dovetail spline jig website, and now here…Looked neat engineering wise, I know it is strong, I have built many things with the jig. I decided to make a “C” chair.
Honeylocust with walnut splines and walnut trim. I am going to make a live edge walnut chair similar soon, with a crotch fan for the back, for myself. This chair is for a friend of mine who I made a honeylocust/walnut splined window seat/plant stand for recently. She loved the combination of wood (so do I)
I knew this joinery would work as a chair because I have made small stretcherless benches (just 3 mitered and splined pieces, like the one above)...that have been stood on end and used as stepstools when the bench was not tall enough setting the way it is supposed to.
So thanks Rowdy for the inspiration.
