I got this plan from a woodworking magazine. The joinery they used was pocket screws. I decided to use mortise and tenon instead( skill learning for me). The seat is shaker tape. The design in the back splat is done using a template made by Milescrafter (spirocrafter). Wood is white oak and finish is wipe on poly.

Hi Bill,

This is a nice job. You did a good job with altering it to M&T joinery. The design looks good and I like the finish as well.

Thanks for the post.

Nice chair, I’ve made a couple chairs and learned a lot and enjoyed doing it. It’s really quite a uniqe experience and you have such artistic license to make whatever you want, its fun and I think I’ll do it again. Good work. mike
