The Autodidact’s Chair part four

December 19, 2012

After the bent laminations are cut to length and smoothed, the rails are made up from solid poplar. The parts are dimensioned and the joinery begins.

I decided to use twin tenons on the corners for some extra strength and glue surface. The parts are laid out and the tenons are sawn first. I use a fret-saw to remove the waste between the tenons and a chisel cleans up the shoulders.

The mating mortises are marked and I remove the bulk of the waste with a brace and bit. A little chisel work and the seat frame is dry fit.

Here are some links to a few of the products used in this video:
