Opening, and reading Franks Blog this Morning(http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/frank/blog/185)
This reminded me of a chair I made for my Grandson’s Wedding gift in 1997.
The bottom of the seat has a carving to remind them of their wedding day.
This is my second attempt at making a Windsor Chair. The first one was made from Red Oak. I’ll show that one as another project.
The plan came from an issue of (Workbench Magazine, March-April 1989.)
I modified the shape of some of the turnings.
The bent parts are 1/10 inch laminations.
First you have to build the bending jigs that are shown in the plan. You also have to use a slower setting glue for this, so I chose Franklin liquid hide glue. Even then I had to move along fairly fast.
They now make some other glues that have longer open times. This project gives you a lot of practice turning duplicate items.
