Glue ups with some of the arms in place
Parts, two top rails, a spindle shaped, a foot and an arm
Fitted up, posts were turned on on my lathe
Some stain and a coat of varnish
Just like a Windsor chair, this uses about five different woods. Where it was needed for strength, oak was used, birch dowels, and two "shaker Pegs' for the finials. Spindles were shaped from 1/2" slats from a pallet, with the round part being made with a spokeshave. The "knife edges' on the spindles were done with just a block plane. The twin arched top rails were bandsawn from the same board, and the spindles wedged in place. Bottom rail is just a straight rail. Too busy?
