needed a chair for granddaughter when she comes to visit,Made of red oak bentwood lamination.had to cut strips in 1/16” pieces so they could make the tight radius.about an inch thick when finished.I’ll have to try some more bent lamination pieces in the future,Really learned alot and she likes it.

So that is not a “high chair” but a higher chair? That is a cool design. Is it yours? Nice job, I still haven’t tried a bent lamination project.

Hi Aaron.My design ,it’s a little taller than a normal chair,it fits under our table so it works out ok.My vision at first was just bent lamination but it would tip so had to make legs for the front to keep from tipping,so much for furniture design.

Your granddaughter will keep you busy in the shop so prepare yourself for it, and your pocketbook.

Great looking chair.

Cool design. Does it have a seat belt so she can’t get away from you?

Do you have any photos of the form you used? Or of the wood clamped into the forms?

How did you bed the actual seat part?

Great job.

hey Kevin ,no photos I should take some work in progress but I just never get to it.The seat is set with dowels .I found that is easier than trying to do angled mortise and tenons.I thinking of trying one more chair like this,if I do I’ll take photos.Thanks for looking everyone
