The latest issue of Woodworker’s Journal has an article with plans for a Civil War Chair. This is a folding chair that looks like a nice piece of furniture and is comfortable. I made one out of cherry. I decided to use my Shopbot for the mortises on the curved back pieces for accuracy and perfect alignment.
I also did the upper back concave curve on the Shopbot so I could add the “1862” to the part. I really like the chair. When I make another one I will do the other parts on the Shopbot too.
The picture shows the chair ready for the cloth seat.
