*The C(hair) of the dog.

Hey Folks,

Well, the set of dining chairs is nearly finished. If their prototype was Le Chaise d’Enfer (The Chair from heqq), then this must surely be the cure. As usual, my favorite chair model Peggy Tzu got the job.

I’ve made some significant improvements over Le Chaise d’Enfer; a more comfortable curve to the crest rail, tapered spindles for better aesthetics, and a better pitch angle to the seat for more comfort.

The chairs are made of black ash; the octagonal legs have conical tenons wedged into the seat pan for a very secure fit. The color is black milk paint, and they are ready for their last coats of polyurethane.

I’ve been taking my time with this project largely because I’m unsure as to when I will be able to get lumber for my next one, whatever it might be. I’m also torn between something modest or something ambitious. For the time being, perhaps modesty should prevail.

Stunning chairs.
Is that the table they go with?

Thanks for posting.

Thanks Duan,

Yeah, the table behind them is the Makore staked leg table that I made from Chris Schwarz', Anarchist Design Book. The table in the far background is the same design in white oak and finished with a soap finish. The chairs would go well with either I think.

Cheers,
Tom
