These chairs were taken from a set of plans from the internet (complete with patterns-Google Greene and Greene Chairs). The basic instructions were excellent.
Total time for two chairs was about 80 hours, counting drawing patterns on large scale graph paper, cutting patterns in MDF, pattern routing the patterns and then cutting the chair pieces and building the chairs. Chairs are constructed of approximately 70 BF of African Mahogany (2 chairs) and 84 Brazilian Ebony hand cut and pillowed plugs to cover stainless steel screws. Ebony plug punches from Lee Valley were used for the plugs. Chair shown is sanded but unfinished. Chairs will be finished with Teak Oil.
A very time consuming but rewarding project, including many sleepless nights.
These chairs will impress your friends!
