Maple Armchair

This chair will be at home in a variety of settings. And since it relies on simple construction techniques, it’s easy to build.

To many woodworkers, building a set of chairs can be intimidating. There are a lot of parts, angles that must be cut and fit, and when you’re all done, they have to be both strong and comfortable to sit in. While this chair presents some unique challenges, building it really isn’t very difficult. The straightforward joinery and construction means there aren’t a lot of complicated angles to deal with. Even the mortises for the slats in the back of the chair are easy to cut once you know how. And you’d think that cutting the mating tenons on the ends of the curved slats would be difficult. But we’ll show you an easy technique that eliminates the guesswork. Building chairs can take your woodworking skills to the next level. And the end result is a project that’s sure to be a hit in your home.
