I am seriously thinking about tackling one of these chairs and have looked at the Wood magazine plans as well as the plans from Woodsmith. Are there any other plans out there I should take a good look at?
I didn’t care for the webbing in the seat that Woodsmith has in their plan mainly because, well frankly we are pretty heavy around here and I don’t want to build something I have to fix in a short while like ripped out webbing.
Do you sit pretty low to the floor in these? We have some elderly people over from time to time and its hard for them to get out of our low sitting sofa so would I have to alter some dimensions to raise the seat some?
I would laminate the curved arms I think and not steam bend them. In laminating, what is the prefered glue? I usually use Titebond II but I remember watching Sam Maloof in a video and he said that he only used regular white glue for laminating. Other views?
