Chair projects made entirely of solid wood often raise questions among amateurs. Christopher Schwarz provides an easily understandable introduction to this multi-faceted topic. Through the construction of a traditional rung chair using traditional techniques, you will learn all of the work processes and discover helpful tips and tricks.
You will learn:
  • Specifying the angle of the chair legs
  • Producing a stable chair leg-to-seat joint without the need for the often intrusive bars between the legs
  • Designing a comfortable chair seat without complicated and laborious shaping
  • Preparing octagonal and tapered chair legs and rungs
  • Producing a curved back using the technique of steam bending
