Almost done... this is my modernist take on a windsor chair - awaiting final sand and finish. in terms of the difficulty i’ve had on a build, this project set a new standard. i didn’t have any plans to go off of, and had not done bent lamination, resaw cutting, seat carving, cylindrical-axis compound angles, tapered dowels or wedged tenons before. some details, like the sequential matching of the lamination strips used for the back-(@drvofurniture
can vouch, i hand cut all 144 strips from a single beam of 18/4 walnut) or the 11 spindles per chair hand cut on the lathe with 1/2” bases and 3/8” tops, were maybe overly time consuming and done more to impress myself. i’ve never learned as much from a build as i have here, and i’m very thankful i got the chance to make these.
