This for my friends daughter, very very basic, the only trick was in the assembly keeping all the screws hidden. The screws that went through the base to hold the back on where then covered over by the legs. Picture of proud Dad, he loved it.

Edit 6th Feb 2018 My Cariad just found some pics of the construction process on her phone that I,ve up linked just now.

nice chair but I think the real trick was finding that much clear pine

I like the design! Would lend itself well to a bit of carving!

Yes , reasonably clear pine , the so called builders here use them as planks ,They originate in the Hardware shops as 8×2s ,

Thanks for the comment, I,ve since had a look at some of your carving works, very nice. Carving is something i haven’t tried, Next month however Im going to try some chainsawing work on big hard wood logs. My plan is to turn out solid chair from one log. Ill keep you posted,

Hi Again Mikeacg

As per PM messages this is a pic of the pine planks i used to build the chair from. Oh being a metric guy I made a mistake, they are actually 9inchs x 2 inch planks of pine at 8 foot lengths

Regards
Anthony

They look absolutely brilliant, similar to what I saw in Austria recently, where is the design from? Yes those pine planks would be suitable, but with the amount of time and effort those chairs will take maybe they deserve some better quality timber rather than pine. Please keep me posted
