Woodworking is one of my favourite hobbies so when Kristy asked my to build a sharp, angular feature chair for our place I jumped on it.
It’s constructed of entirely dressed pine and uses traditional mortise and tenon joinery to come together without any screws or nails. Each joint was formed using hand tools.
An outward angle the forward leg posed a challenge. The angle put a lot of force on the joint which meant it had to be particularly strong.
A simplified version of these joint concepts provided a good amount of surface area for gluing giving the strength need.
After spending hours milling and cutting it was a huge relief to see it all fit!
Once all the pieces were cut, the chair was glued, sanded and then finished with a matte polyurethane.
