Hi All,

I’ve been woodworking for a while, but am thinking about tackling my first curved project. It’s a chair I noticed a while back and unfortunately is longer being sold (Water Tower Chair by Bellboy (NY)). See the attached link. Any advise on where to start and how to clamp / assemble?

I made a 3D model of the chair, so I have templates that I can work with.

Thanks!

Get a Lancelot carver and a lot of sandpaper. You’ll need it.

You can brick-lay the glue-up without using clamps provided
the parts are well-fitted. Hide glue would be a good choice.

Boards for the factory chair were probably dimensioned to
thickness on a wide belt sander before the parts were cut.

Loren,

Thanks. I’ll look into that grinder. Didn’tknow something like that existed! I want to use a Festool domino to make sure the pieces will fit together securely. Still trying to figure out how to clamp without the whole thing collapsing one me.
