Craftsman Chair

The Craftsman Chair Front

The Craftsman

This dining chair design is a version of an old one that I found to be exceptionally comfortable. The array of spindles in the back provides good support for the back and the stretchers under the seat are arranged so as not to restrict leg positions. The chair can also be made without stretchers. The joinery is mortise and tenon. The chair can be supplied stained and lacquered or with a clear lacquer finish. The design can include arms and the seat can be carved, as shown, flat or upholstered.

Wood:                                   maple or alder

Price:                                   $435
