Nice looking chair. SWMBO and I love the Mission/Arts&Crafts/Stickley
style (at least this year<g>).
Please keep us in the loop as you proceed.
Is that your music stand next to the "model?" Very neat. Looks like
somebody is/knows a welder/smithie with some talent.
Will do ... I'm looking forward to reproducing this chair. That curved back
is a challenge.
Linda has two of those .. I think they may have been a gift from a fan
somewhere in the distant past. She and our daughter have a concert this
weekend, so brought that thing into _my_ office Sunday so I could help them
with the chords to Alison Krauss's acapella version of "Down to The River
Songwriter, singer, or not, want to know the chords to a song? Just ask
the closest bass player. :)
It will probably be in my way for months now ...
The original is a factory made (rather poorly, IMO) furniture store
chair of approximately ten years of age, and the curved back legs are
most definitely cut out of a wider board.
On careful inspection, 5/4 red oak stock, 7 1/4" in width x 40" in
length, will accommodate this method for that curve as long as the grain
is carefully chosen.
Here's how that may play out:
A plus is that at least the front, and back, legs for each side of the
proposed chairs can be laminated to the required 2" width at the top,
from the curved cutoffs of that same stock/process.
Down payment in hand and finished my CutList this morning, so will be
shopping for suitable stock this afternoon and tomorrow.
I'm going to do one prototype (but useable?) leg as a router template,
in any case, so I'll have a better feel for methodology at that point.
And yes, I'm working in my office ... so I can enter everything in
Sketchup as it works out. ;)

Heck, Robert. He's already got the curve of the back leg going the wrong
way.... unless it's being made for someone that'll be facing to the left.
I always love to see your work. Since I have seen your work in
person, my mind fills in the tight joints, the solid construction, and
the well thought out details in the projects you turn out that
pictures can't show. Sadly, (and no idea of how to fix this...) your
pictures, probably no one's, could do some of your work justice.
But the next thing that impresses me is that you take the time to
document your work, explain it, and provide drawings and sketches to
assist in understanding your designs and methods. I don't know if
very many understand much time and effort that takes, but I sure do.
So thanks for your work and thanks for sharing it. I look forward to
the build process on this newest contract.

<blush> Thanks, Robert ... damn! :)
Actually, if the truth were told, I found out early on that time spent
in detailed planning makes up, somewhat, for a lack of talent.
That's my story, and I'm sticking to it. <g>
