    dining room chairs

    well, just because the shop is shut down for the season, doesn't mean i get to stop working on stuff. got the first set of parts for one of the dining room chairs done, along with all six back legs. now i just have to get the other two sets sanded. tonight i started the finishing process, which won't be truly done until the spring. at least i got a start with dying the first set of parts. the next step would be to give it a light sanding to knock down the grain, and 3 coats of shellac, before assembly. come spring, it will be that part, along with the re-engraving of the upper back parts. the parts for the fourth one (which replaces the one given away with the dining table) will be done in the spring as well.

    If you mentioned it earlier, I forgot...what kind of wood did you use on these? Looks oak-like from here.

    Nice, like the looks of the chair, what color is the dye?

    Looks like a good start, Dan. Are these the same chairs you were talking about on this thread?

    yup, white oak. it's kind of a custom mix of trans tint dyes. sort of a medium brown with a touch of a reddish color. (good thing i mixed up about a half gallon, as i forgot the formula). yup, same ones. i'll have to redo the engraving as i don't like the way the first ones came out.

    been a while, but i've gotten all of the other chair parts sanded. now i have to hit them with the dye, and when i can get into the shop, remake the upper back parts on the cnc.

    got more of this one done today. finished cutting all of the parts, and planed the leg parts to thickness, and glued them up.

    took the legs out of the clamps. trimmed the back and side spindles to size. then planed the rest of the parts to thickness. tomorrow, clean up the legs, mortises and tenons, and start the cnc work.
