A Funeral Chair


I received a letter from Rud in Denmark yesterday and wanted to share it with you. Rud recently completed a Funeral Chair, following plans from my book, The Unplugged Woodshop.

He used steamed beech for the body and fumed oak for the seat slats. A nice touch!

Thanks for sharing these with us Rud-

your Funeral Chair turned out really well.


Seat detail.



Hi Tom. 

I live in Denmark.  I wanted to build a chair for a while and this project seems like it would be a good gateway project.  I used steamed beech and fumes oak.  The beech was leftovers from my bench build and the oak was just a large scrap.

Take a seat.
