As most of you know I have a commision to make furtniture for a New Church. If you missed it you can read about it here. Although the church wont be ready intil mid March I figured I'd better get started. I have a problem with storage so I'll be making the smaller pieces first. I decided to start off with the chairs. The main chair will 50 inches tall and the side chair will be 40 inches tall. All the furnisture will be Maple. The chair legs are going to be 8/4.
Today I cut a template for the back legs and got them layed out. There is anough scrap left over to make the table legs but that will be another thread. Tomarrow I should get the legs shaped and the rest of the pieces for the seats cut.
The rear legs are kicked out 3 degress for stability. The back the same for comfort. I got the three degree number from Sam Maloof when He was showing us how he made chairs.
