Sellers Home Dining Chairs: Episode 11

Dining Chairs EP11 KF

This is an episode in a paid series. Want to watch it? You just need to sign up as a paid member and you can enjoy this video and many other videos we think you will love.

This final episode in completing a set of dining chairs for Sellers’ home takes care of all the little details any maker must go through to bring everything to a quality completion. Hand finishing the way Paul did took care of all of the idiosyncrasies, from plugging the screwheads to scribing the chair to a level surface. Delivery is more than just installing a finished item but the small and incremental steps it takes to get there. The dining six came together to complement the dining table series we completed at the end of 2021. For Paul, it was the realisation of a dream to design a personal dining set that has never been seen before now.

    To be quite frank, making chairs didn’t seem very exciting to me at first glance. But over the episodes, I was able to discover and appreciate all the subtleties and refinements implemented in this project. After more than two months of impatiently waiting for the new episode every Wednesday, I can only admire the result. This project is really exciting because it involves so many particular details and techniques. However, isn’t the number of chairs likely to discourage the amateur working with hand tools? I would like to hear Paul give us his advice on how to avoid discouragement when faced with the repetition of certain tasks.

    I was lost on how Paul found the 38mm to remove the twist…. I didn’t understand, it was too fast for me.
    The width of the twist is 25mm, where is the remaining 13mm to get to 38mm?

    Why did Paul only make these cuts on the other chairs after applying the finish?
    Couldn’t he have done this check before?
    He did this to all the other chairs?

      I asked Paul your questions but wasn’t sure of the question. Could you explain a bit more?
