Man… those sure beat the heck out of the store bought ones. Nice job on those.

Great job! Lots of little parts there, were you able to mass produce them? Cheers

Actualy-I wasn’t, but I was long of time for this: it took almost 2 weeks.

Very nice!
I agree, they are much better then store bought junk.

They look comfortable.

I’ made chairs using one factory made as a sample. I’ll ask my friend to give me one of those chairs to measure dimensions.

Goriak,

Those are super COOL nice chairs!

The bent laminated backs interests me..
... possible to show pictures of your clamping Mold as well as the Joint?

Thank you very much… You did good!

The joint is “simple” mortise and tenon, it was a challenge to do tenons for me, cause this was my second woodworking project in my life, first chair backrest tenons was made by handtools, but then I used table saw and Mold made of multiple layers of MDF. Mold width is distance between styles plus double deep of tenon.
It is difficult to me to explain, I’ll better try to do some drawings. Please stand by.

here is drawing. These chairs have laminated backrests.
Glue strips in mold, do not remove workpiese from mold, just reposition clamps every next step for they do not interfere with tools or fense or wise, then cut away waste with chisel or japanes saw (pos.1 on drawing),
cut tenons on tablesaw (2 and 3),
cut shoulders with handsaw and clean with chisel (4)
