Stylish Dining Chair

These comfortable chairs would make great stand alone pieces or a complementary set to our Cherry Dining Table.

A set of matching dining chairs offers a surefire way to enhance the look of a dining table. Of course, a good set of dining room chairs not only has to match the style of the table, but they also have to be comfortable. And that's where getting all the right angles and curves comes into play. There's no need to be concerned about trying your hand at building these. In the design for the chairs, you'll find that we've taken most of the tricky tasks out of the job. The back legs are simply cut to shape on the band saw. The slats in the back of the chair are bent to shape using the technique of steam bending. The gentle bend of the slats is not at all difficult to create. And an off-the shelf steam bending kit makes it easy to get started. Other plans in this dining room set: the table, buffet and hutch.
