Here is a set of chairs that I made for one of my early clients. It has remained one of my favorites because it made for a good photo and I felt like I was getting to the level of work that I was feeling happy with.

Believe it or not, I have a bed design that is a play off of this chair. I just need to make it.

I absolutely loved that video. Never seen it before. Awesome. I certainly would put to use a 5 axis CNC.

I must say that I prefer mortis and tenon over dowel or floating tenon. Not saying it can’t work but the former sure seems a more long lasting joint. The chair makes me want to see if I can steam bend those curves rather than just cut the shape into the wood.

That’s really nice. I’ve got some scraps that I think would be perfect for a few of these. You can never have too many chairs.

So are those mortise and tenon joints on the legs? How about the back rest – how’s it fastened?

Very nice.

All the leg joints are mortise and tenon and pegged from the inside. The back support is connected with dowels. It is a very rare place that I use a dowel for joinery but for that use it is plenty sufficient.

Great idea, and they look fantastic too. Can’t wait to see the “stackable” bed frames! :)
