Dining Chairs

Recommended Posts

Those are nice chairs, and it appears they are in the right hands if they ever weaken :) 

Oh and the chairs you’ve made, awesome :) 

I AM stealing that design.... when one day I may make a dining table and chairs! My wife loves them.

Nice work, Drew! And thanks for journaling the details, I'm sure to use several of these techniques when I finally get around to building chairs

 

Me too. I thought the 1” piece of wood against the bandsaw fence was brilliant. I would not have thought of that.

Don't ever do it with a table saw. I'm sure there are plenty of reasons you shouldn't do it with a bandsaw too... i just don't know those reasons.

I can just see your wife or kids coming in with face in phone not paying attention and trying to sit down at one of the chairs.  Worst seats ever :)

Maybe we should start a pool as to whom will finish first: @Chestnut and his dining chairs, or @pkinneb and his home theater :) Both have been stellar builds.

It appears Drew has me beat but I will be done by Sat evening :)  (with the theater interior still have work in the basement) :P

I love these chairs especially the back slat design! While I have never designed anything I have been thinking about how to incorporate Drew's design into a kitchen set for our home...but there I go getting ahead of myself again LOL

Nut, the red handled brush, is it used as a dust brush? 

Yes i use it to sweep off bench tops an what not. It's one of those handheld brushes that comes with a small dustpan.

I was looking for that last night and couldn't find it. Thanks for letting me know where it is :D
