Something Paul has had planned for some time now, and here it is, a completed set of six dining chairs made from oak and walnut using traditional joinery, a combination of hand tools, and some bandsaw work for heavy cutting. Throughout this series, Paul employs lots of hand tool techniques and methods you might never have seen before. It’s not too big a project to make a single chair, and you can make them all at once, one at a time, or make them in pairs as you have the time and the energy. Paul feels quite proud of the outcome of an elegant design he came up with specifically for the Sellers’ home dining room series. We hope you enjoy watching and making it!

While Paul has been finessing the chair into its final form, the design has continued to develop. The technical drawings will follow once the shavings have settled.

    I am very pleasantly surprised at the end result Paul. Watching the prototypes I felt the chair design was more akin to an outdoor setting. But after seeing the end result they are beautiful and I could imagine a lounge, dinning room full of this lighter brighter style of furniture. The finished complete set look great.
    And as usual another gem of a joint to put in the knowledge bank.

    I think those chairs are absolutely stunning. One day I might be brave enough to try and make some!

    In episode 9 are you using a 3/8″ Forstner bit for the plug recess in the slats?
