Wood Cutting Diagram


Step 2: After the wood is cut and sanded it's time to start assembly. We start with the two back legs (which we are calling stringers) The 2 stringers are the heart of the chair as they hold everything else together.

Use wood screws that are 1 5/8" to 1 3/4" long for  all assembly, except where noted. Always pre-drill the holes to prevent splitting.  

Note:  Most assembly will be simply fitting the appropriate pieces together.  The guides at location "A" (drawing on right) are noted on wood cutout diagram above.



The string shown in the drawing above indicates how to cut curves for the seat or the back (if desired).
