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.

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.
