Chair Parts

I’m starting to make the parts for four chairs in red oak. The old chairs we have are falling apart. The chairs I’m making are based on a 1940s production chair.

After the crest rails are removed from the form they are edge-jointed and sawed to width. The slot for the back splat is routed with the crest rail clamped back in the bending form.
