Project Description

We chose hickory here for its great strength and elasticity.  It can be worked in small sections and in small curves.  It is a frame chair, using rectangular mortise and tenons.  These make a set of six including two armchairs.  Each chair is slightly different by request.

This is a French curve roughly cut and then finished with a hand chisel.

Here we can see the rectangular mortise and tenons.  The two arm chairs were for the mother and father of the family.  Since, by request, each chair is slightly different, on delivery each member of the family chose his or her own chair very carefully.
