Hello everyone,

Here are some pictures of a newly completed chair design. The Tea Party Chair was a ton of fun to build, and the chair allows it to be tucked away in a corner when not needed (just like me). The chair can be built using any number of different joints, such as my Butterfly Joint, a Maloof Joint or even a lap joint.

For anyone interested, the project is available as a DVD with included templates here:

So the next time you’re at a Tea Party and need a comfy place to sit…you’ll have one.

I really like the concept of the three legged chair, and you have executed it wonderfully. I may try a redention of this in the future, thanks for the inspiration.

That is a really beautiful chair Scott. The 3 legged design is very nice and practical.

I really find it beautiful, it’s light and elegant, but still standing ‘solid’ on the three legs.
Really good design,
Best thoughts,

I like the delicate look that belies the strength. The backrest support really works nicely here. A plus is the fact that people are less likely to rock back on one leg rather than two! Nice execution.

Very unique design. Beautiful chair! But I didn’t think they sat down at tea parties? I thought they jumped around and yelled derogatory remarks and hit people on the head with poster signs? (justt kiddding… )
