The one I used is cherry and the overall design kinda has a modern aesthetic but has a few throwbacks to some classic things. Like green and green furniture, which you guys know I love. I've got a few cloudless here as details in the rail and the crest rail at the top. That's a nice curvature in the back rail. In fact, I actually used the profile of the Maloof rockers backrest. To give me the shape that I know is definitely going to be the comfortable crest. Rail has some curvature there and the legs are angled out at about six or seven degrees, and that gives the chair a little bit of a splay angle makes the top a little bit wider. The seat here is upholstered and inset, and you could design any seat. You want for that overlay and set it all works with this design.
The legs have some nice tapers and a pillowed effect on them, and the finish is just the simple wiping varnish now for the full version of this build. I think it's like sixteen or seventeen videos that we did and a full set of plans and templates go to the Wood Whisperer guild com for more information. But for now let me show you how I built it so as it turns out, chairs have been around for a long time so before I put pencil to paper I'll use some other chairs as reference and extract some important measurements from there I'll Sketch up some Full-Size drawings, this not only helps me work out the details but also gives me what I need to make the templates.
The templates are made from a thin cardboard, which is inexpensive, flexible and easy to shape before cutting the legs to shape our out. The mortises the rear legs are then rough cut and the site template is used at the router table, with a flush trim bit to develop the final shape after the prototype was built. I made a nice routing sled to help me build the five remaining chairs with a side profile established. We can now cut the front profile on the rear legs, the front legs are cut to size and then mortises. Each leg receives tapers on the inside faces and a pillared profile on the outside faces. The rails of the chair are cut to size and mitered to the appropriate angle on the ends. Normally, this would be a nightmare to mortise, but with a simple angled support board.
The process is pretty easy. This is a variation of a trick that I learned from fellow woodworker Matthew Teague the rails receive a decorative cloud, lift inspired by Darrell, pier it's green and green Aurora furniture cut off stock is used to create the loose Tenon's and we can now do a quick Dry assembly, the crest rail is cut to fit in between the legs and the ends are mitered for a perfect fit I'll, attach the crest rail with screws and then we'll later cap. Those off with walnut plugs. The backrest blanks are first cut to size and miter to fit between the bottom back rail and the crest rail, the crest rail, lower back rail, and backrest blanks are now more dust. The backrests are then cut to shape in two dimensions. I can now add a slide pillowing with a high point in the center, and the edges are about a sixteenth of an inch thinner. We can now shape the crest rail with a curve at the top and two little relief cuts on the bottom. The crest rail also has curves cut out on the front and the back faces, since I'm doing an inset seat. I also need to add cleats to the inside of the rails. After rounding over the edges and doing some finish sanding, I could do the final assembly of the chair, while'no plugs are installed and then trimmed flush. The crest rail is smooth into the legs and any last bits of sanding are taken. Care of this chair design can accommodate three seed types, including wood, overlay, upholstered overlay and upholstered in a set.
