Not all the parts are here, corner blocks, seat parts etc.. They will be upholstered.. One part of the job I dred.. I've upholstered quite a few chairs but consider myself a complete novice. I could out-source that part of the job, but the upholster charges quite a bit, and it really eats into my profits.

The FMT is one jig I wouldn't want to be without for these chairs
I'm also still a novice with the spray gun, and find it easier to spray these parts before glue-up.. That means having to mask the joinery areas. Theresa lot of joinery in six chairs, so a ton of masking... but I prefer that to struggling with it all assembled.
I could rub an oil finish something similar on, but it just doesn't hold up as well, and the table that goes with these was sprayed.
Okamisan, You can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time but you can't fool anybody on this forum about being a novice at anything furniture making -- we've all seen the exquisiteness of all aspects of your craftsmanship.
