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.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
