Here are a couple of chairs that I built for my dining table a little while back. Like the dining table they go with, they are QSWO, fumed, oiled and finished with a wipe-on poly.
It is the only project I have done so far where there was repetiton—two of the captain’s chairs and four of the standard dining chairs.
The backs are a bit too upright for relaxing in for a long time, but for their intended purpose—dining—they are more than adequate.
I built them from measured drawings from one of the Stickley-style books. (I can’t remember the name of it right now)
It’s on to the next project now—a Greene and Greene inspired coffee table similar to the Aurora table of Darrell Peart’s.
