My son and his family are really big into Renaissance Fairs and participate every year as re-enactors. Recently my daughter in law asked me if I could build a Gothic Arch Knockdown Chair that she saw on the internet So I set about making hardboard patterns for the various parts and then made this particle board prototype to work out any kinks in the design.
The through tenons you see sticking though the sides are supposed to have slots in them to accommodate wedges which hold the chair together thus the “knockdown” feature of the chair. The idea for this chair is to be able to transport it flat and then put it together on site.
I have a few more modifications to make and then I think I will build one out of 1” thick pine. I used two 1/2” thick pieces of particle board glued together for the prototype pieces. Enjoy!!
