We’re promoting this cherry comb-back stick chair with a piece of the proceeds going on to The Chairmaker’s Toolbox to assist the subsequent era of chairmakers and toolmakers.
I constructed this chair in the course of the scholarship class final week in our workshop. It’s produced from black cherry and is about up for common use – eating and keyboarding. It has good (however not aggressive) lumbar help. The chair seat is 16-1/4” off the ground. The general top is 37-1/4”
All of the mortise-and-tenon joints are assembled with cover glue. The end is a non-toxic mix of linseed oil and beeswax made in our workshop.
As a result of this chair was made in a fast-paced atmosphere the place I used to be juggling educating and constructing chores, it has a couple of beauty flaws. However it’s structurally good. Straight grain for all of the legs, sticks and stretchers. Tight joints. Good hand-shaped surfaces.
