Ingredients for six chairs
 
Most of the parts for six chairs, Oak and Bubinga
I might spray a finish on these before I glue up

That's a lot of work there. Looks like this one job payed for your FMT. Looking forward to seeing the next phase.

Wow, Okamisan - that's a serious amount of work! Are these going to be your curved-back chairs? Or something new. I can hardly wait to see. Please keep the pictures coming.

When you spray on a finish prior to assembly do you mask off all the joints, etc?

Okami,

Okay... I counted 24 bubinga legs. Then there are the longer legs in the background. Are these bar chairs or such? Also, I didn't see anything for the seats - are you going to upholster or weave them?

Since there are six chairs I'm guessing he made two spare parts.

Yes, these are the curved back chairs i've made in the past.
12legs, 24back rests/slats (4 on each chair ).
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:thumbsup2:
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. :nono: ;)

I don't know what you mean Mark, there's a place for everything in my shop...
Usually placed where I used it last, or put it down under a pile of curlies:D
I'm quite well known for being a messy woodworker, it's just in my nature, I can't keep the place clean and organized for more than two hours:)
when I was at college, we were taught to keep things clean and organized... As soon as I had my own woodshop, all those lessons went out the window.
It's how real woodshops are supposed to look anyway:Laughing2:
