After years of avoiding making chairs — except for that Craftsman rocker — Phil is thinking of making a chair. Specifically a dining room chair. Inspired by the work of Danish chairmaster Hans Wegner and his book "Just One Good Chair." Phil likes the look of the "cattle" chairs Wegner designed. What will he come up with? To help out, he asked John for some starting points.
Here are the chairs that Phil would like to combine into his own version.
The cow horn chair (the ends of the elbow rest are the best part... along with the splines in the back rest.
CH20 dining chair. The separate solid wood (or upholstered) seat pan is the appeal here. The back rest to back legs connection is the simplest of the chairs.
The Bull chairs (long horn and short horn) offer interesting base design elements.
These chairs and others are from the very ispiring book: One Good Chair
Phil showed off a sneak peak of an upcoming project: turnt Christmas trees.
The free plan for this episode is a shavehorse — better than the one Logan made. Phil uses this one in his shop and even made a "spoon mule" add on for it. This plan is free for a limited time.
