Web 2.0

Some progress shots of a new chair that I am working on. The frame is an update of the Webster chair, except instead of finding a full sheet of plywood in a parking garage, we were given offcuts from a local wood shop that creates crown mouldings.

Joint Details.

The chair has an inner and outer frame that are held together with Chicago bolts. The plan was to counter-sink the bolts, but the contrast of the light wood and the dark hardware was too good to downplay.

Armrest/Front Leg Joint.

Each frame is held together using lap joints and dowel pins which sadly pushed my wood working skills to their limit. The seating surface will be upholstered soon.
