Mid-Century furniture was one of the main reasons I even got into woodworking. Seeing the clean lines and rich wood colors made me more curious about furniture construction which rapidly took me down the slope to woodworking. Two years later, I now feel fool hearty enough to try to build an MCM chair.
I’ve browsed the web a lot for design elements, and I stumbled onto this one a while back that had a lot of elements I liked, here's the original blog (a furniture restorer I believe):
I couldn’t find any more information on this, or other examples other than the restoring person's blog posts about it.
I’m trying to simplify some of the elements (reduce the number of compound angles), and the result might become more boxy than this one. For the dimensions, I’m trying to copy with slight adjustments the classic Wishbone dimensions, which are graciously provided on the official site of Hans Wegner furniture company.
I’m still trying to figure out what’s feasible with my skills and tools, so the design is in flux, any thoughts would be appreciated!
