Lounge Chair #10: Almost there

05-09-2019 04:04 AM by Kaelin Quigley | 1 comment »

After many weeks, the bridal joint and holes for the dowels were put into place. Now just time to throw in some glue and screws to put it all together, sand, find a good finish, and get an upholster to sew the pads.

Lounge Chair #9: It's coming together...Glued up the legs.

04-27-2019 12:24 AM by Kaelin Quigley | 1 comment »

Now all of these parts and pieces are starting to make sense. The slats for the leather pads are biscuited and glued into the arched legs. Unfortunately, the miter at which the back sits on the legs is incorrect so ill have to do some cutting by hand and refine that angle to get the proper reclining slope. The back is screwed through the bottom and a lot of the actual strength of the chair comes from a bridal joint which scissors from the back into the arms. Surprisingly, there are only four ...

Lounge Chair #8: Arm into leg

04-20-2019 12:49 AM by Kaelin Quigley | 1 comment »

I thought this would be a lot more tricky than it turned out to be. Four dowels are placed in the top of the leg and run into the bottom of the arm to make it appear as if the arms are floating. The dowels are 3/8” and are a little longer than an inch. This forms the “lego joint” which is used a few different places on this chair.

Lounge Chair #7: Back-Slats and glue up

04-12-2019 11:22 PM by Kaelin Quigley | 0 comments »

The slats of the back are the only straight piece of the chair. They measure about 17 inches long and along with all the other pieces of the chair, are 3 inches wide. A biscuit runs down the middle of each piece and I was going to put a pocket screw through the bottom but decided not to. There are five slats in total.

Lounge Chair #5: Upright Legs

03-05-2019 03:44 AM by Kaelin Quigley | 1 comment »

Cut from 8/4 cherry. Cut to a width of about I want to say four inches and about 22 inches long. With a flexible ruler, I traced the two curves. In the middle, it is almost straight for about 3 or so inches. I then took it to the bandsaw and later cleaned up the curves on an oscillating spindle sander. The first picture shows how the arm will look with a leg and the second is the two legs together. .
