I’m excited to post our very first new plan on the new site! Squeal! I hope you have had a chance to visit the new digs and check things out. They are a bit different, but definitely better! While we enjoy our new surroundings, a fabulous chair might be a good addition to the pack and the perfect partner for some of our fabulous tables, like the Harcombe Table we posted a few days ago. Match made in heaven if you ask me! Xx… Rayan

Before beginning to build, always check in on my site to make sure you have the most up to date set of plans, I occasionally update and change the plans to make the building process easier or to allow for less expensive purchasing of materials! Read through the entire set of instructions and all comments before beginning this project. If you print out or save plans, be sure to check in on my site to be sure you have the most up to date set of plans, as I occasionally update things for ease of building or buying. If you are new to building, read through the GETTING STARTED section and other articles found under the BUILD tab in the menu on my site, it has valuable information about how to get started, tools and techniques. If you are unfamiliar with the finishing process, visit my Finishing school for some tips and tricks for painting like a pro and for special finishing practices. Use glue to secure your joints and Consider Painting or Staining individual sections prior to assembling. This makes the paint application virtually flawless. Coat with a spray on Poly or Wipe on Poly to protect your finish and your piece and it will last for ages. Adhere to all safety standards and guidelines, and be sure you follow safety protocol throughout your build. If you are unsure about whether you are building safely, run a quick online search for the tool or technique you are using, or contact me via email or post to the forum before you move ahead. My contact info can be found in the menu of my site.
If using edge banding, it will be applied to the exposed edges of the plywood prior to assembly.
Cut the 2×4 pieces for the back legs. Draw the legs on the board according to the dimensions shown. Cut the legs out using a jigsaw or a bandsaw.
Cut the pieces for the upper back and the back apron. Set the Kreg jig for ¾” material and drill pocket holes in each end of the pieces. Position the pieces as shown (the upper back piece will follow the angle of the legs) and secure using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws locating the apron ¼” back from the outside face of the legs.
Cut the pieces for the front legs and front apron. Cut the taper in the legs using a jigsaw, a bandsaw, or a tapering jig on the table saw. Drill pocket holes in each end of the apron piece, then secure using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws locating the apron ¼” back from the outside face of the legs.
Cut the pieces for the sides and drill pocket holes in each end. Secure to the legs using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws locating the pieces ¼” back from the outside face of the legs.
