Midnight Woodworking


More pub chairs – day 10

I started out today by marking and cutting the rest of the pieces I need to get these chairs assembled.

Marking the cross pieces

Marking the leg spacers

The first pieces I did were the 5″ leg spacers. They needed to match the curve of the rear of the seat.

Next I marked and cut the cross pieces. They had a notch at one end and the other end needed to be marked and cut later during the assembly.

I got most of the way through the assembly of the first chair before I decided to call it a day.
