Rustic log chair made in my style of hand scribing the logs to mate together as if they grew this way. Made from Yellow Birch, Standard single size seat of 22” x 22”
light coat of antique pine stain and 2 coats of hand rubbed Danish oil.
This chair was sold before I finished and a second double chair was ordered.
I’ll show a pic of chair with cushions once its in place.

Thanks for looking,
Doug

Nice chair.
I’d appreciate it if you would describe the process of hand scribing more.

Hey William,
Thanks
I’ve posted a description in a blog series of a Bed frame I did last winter.

Thanks.
I will be sure to check it out.

I’ve wanted to get into this type of furniture for some time.
I can’t afford the proper tools for it though.
Besides that, I haven’t got a source for suitable wood to do this right now either.

I really only use a few hand tools, draw-knife, good rasp, scraper and a hand wittler plus the drill with a assortment of drills and a Lot of time. I’ve built lots of rustic log furniture using the traditional style of mortice & tenon so I wanted to do it different with a lot more style. This way takes 10 times the time and I’ve been doing it for years.

That is a VERY NICE COOL rustic chair!

Yes, you do a great job of selecting your pieces… it’s amazing how your trees grow! LOL

How are you going to do the Seat?

Thank you!

I have a frame made up with standard furniture springs and twine that for the most part will be covered
by the bottom cushion. Bottom cushion will be 4” thk foam and the back will be styled like a pillow.
I will post a pick when they are done.
