sorry to offer criticism, but how long do you expect that to stay together? the design had arms for a reason, and now it is strength compromised.

A very nice chair… I too am concerned about the Strength since the arms are gone…I, personally, like the arms… it’s nice to have a place to rest’em.
Nice chair… Nice job!

I understand the concern with the strength but to be honest I was intending on making a chair with arms but I messed up the arm joint so instead of scrapping it I made due. I have enough cherry to make another so I will attempt to make a true low back dinning chair next (seat already made).
I will also be adding hard pads under the feet to protect them from chipping.

Now, THAT was a good answer! :) LOL…
You did the best you could with what you had…

I was building this chair for a show I have at the end of the month and on Saturday when I realized I couldn’t utilize the arms it took awhile to come to the decision that I did. Even if the chair doesn’t get used and is just a display piece it will still show my craftsmanship at the show and will hopefully help sell a few rockers.

Very nice work, This chair looks great in cherry. I’m just cutting up the wood for the C.B. dinning chair plans and believe I’m coming up short for the wood for the arms. I’m using air dried walnut and the little kiln dried I have on hand is not a good color match. After seeing your chair I don’t know why I didn’t think to build it armless.

After several months and numerous art shows the chair has shown no issues related to the strength of the front legs.
