this chair was made from one piece of ash that I had laying around for a couple years. the original piece was 60” long by 8”wide by 3” thick and from that I milled all the pieces needed to make this chair. The chair was made as a prototype for a customer who wanted dining room chairs.. she love the quality of the chair, it is very heavy and solid. She wanted a different design on the back so I ended up with this chair and she got six with a different back design. it is constructed with pegged tenons and has no screws or nails in it.. did I mention I hate nails and screws.. the upholstered seat is covered with a curtain, problem was she loved the material so I had to go find four more panels to upholster all the seats..

Eddie, its a pretty straight forward chair, Pegged mortise and tenons throughout, I put a 3 degree lean to the back to make it more comfortable, but other than that everything is a straight tenon. Some of the plans will show a narrower back than a front which requires angled tenons. I find that for dining chairs its not needed. it makes the joinery much easier also.. have fun with it… I built this one on the fly without any plans, just a quick sketch to make sure I knew my measurements as I went along.. real easy chair to build..
