A friend who recently did me a favor asked me if I could cut some plywood bottoms for his metal chairs that matched a small table he has on his deck. Sure, I said. That was two days ago. A little research in circle cutting jigs…some plywood…and I just finished his 15 1/2 inch chair bottoms. The first photo shows the glue up on the two layers of MDF that created a “dovetail” cleat to hold the movable board that had the center pivot point in it. The second photo shows the detail of the cleat. And the third photo shows the complete first chair bottom made from 1/2 inch oak plywood. These chair bottom should make the sitters comfortable and unafraid they’ll fall through the old rotten ones.
