« Part 16: Final shaping and start of glue-up Part 17 of Wegner-Inspired Deck Chair series Part 18: Add-on weaving slots »

After a final dry fit, I did a little bit of final shaping, drilled the holes for the seat weaving bars, and glued-up the rails to the side structures. The front legs, the stretcher between them, and the arms will be a separate glue-up.

Holes in the rear seat rail for the weaving bars. There are matching holes drilled in the front seat rail.

Little bit of shaping.

Weaving bars installed.

Clamped and checked for square.

I let the glue dry on those pieces before moving on the the final push, adding the front legs, stretcher, and arms.

I’m glad that’s done. It’s almost a chair now.

Looks really good.
I love that you have put all this effort and skills into some basic wood.
Somehow it makes it even more elegant, that upgrade a simple piece of wood like this.
Really impressed, really inspirational.
Best thoughts,
