The Table/bench legs and aprons are made from Poplar (turned on the lathe), tops are Red Oak 1” thick. The chairs are made from Poplar with a Red Oak seat, finished to match the table/bench.

This was my first attempt at chairs and I cheated. I ordered a Maine Ladder-back online that was unassembled to get a full size pattern for my legs and back slat placement. After that I made a jig for my shaper where I could make repeated legs. I then made a full size chair with my changes and started the production of these 4. I further cheated and used the Domino for the joinery, BUT, this particular chair was not that difficult to make and I’m confident now after building chairs that I could make them with mortise and tenon joinery.

i would not say the domino is cheating. thats a game changing tool offering a tremendously strong joint. Personally, I dont see the advantage of going that traditional in the chairs unless you have that extra time to kill to get them perfect. Looks well done sir

I would have loved to see some more photos of various assembly methods… table tops, seats, etc.

Thank you all for the comments, I appreciate that.

The Domino is a game changer for sure and definitely saved a lot of time on the chair build!
