Default Building Wegner's The Chair

Well, I have finally begun building The Chair. There is an introduction to the project which, with the exception of a little lathe work and roughing out on the bandsaw, has a hand tool focus ..

I have been busy the part week ... well, a few hours each day (as I am on leave) ..

Stretchers: http://www.inthewoodshop.com/Furnitu...tretchers.html

Tenons: http://www.inthewoodshop.com/Furnitu...airTenons.html

Morticing: Furniture

As always, any advice and discussion is welcomed.

Best wishes from Perth for the New Year

Derek

Hi Charles

Just the one chair. If I had planned on more, I would certainly not gone down the hand tool route! I'd be too old to sit on them when they finally got done.

Regards from Perth

Derek

Thanks Neil ... I have watched that video over and over for clues. It is linked to in my Introduction. You were not paying attention!

I reached some of the coping earlier than I expected. Here is how it went ..

Well, I went back through your intro and still did not see it!

Nice progress on the coping and legs Derek. Were those turned or just sanded and spokeshaved?

I ran across this video on production of danish chairs. Pretty amazing at how they go from rough to sculpted rounds.

Thanks for sharing your build!
