« Part 5: Start to arms. Part 6 of Stickley No. 369 Slant-arm Morris Chair series Part 7: Finishing up the woodworking »

The back slats will be curved. First we need the distance between tenons. The stile of the back are milled and with locating hole assemble to the chair with a pin. A mock up straight section tenon was made.

Next we need a form to glue the back slats. Two curved forms were made with the bandsaw. Between the forms at spacers that allow us to clamp and accommodate the various slat heights. That assembly is mounted to a piece of plywood. Everything has thin foam sheet to prevent slats from bonding and to add some compliance.

Slats are made by gluing 6 1/8” veneers together. Honestly, tried to get away with using ugly wood. By the time I decided it was ugly, I made the bottom slats. Decided to use anyway because it was so much work. Don’t be cheap…
