This is an adaptation of a chair I witnessed in a book I was flipping through a while back. It’s completely made of poplar, glue, and pocket hole screws. Every continuous leg, back rest, etc. is 2 1/4”. The seat top is clearly just 3/4”. It was finished with sanding sealer, and 5 coats of “blood red” alkyd paint.

An interesting chair. The first picture seems to be showing you gluing up pieces to increase the thickness and to hide the pocket screws.

Very sturdy looking chair. I would not have thought that pocket screws would have been strong enough for a chair – but I guess that I was wrong. Now I want to try one.

Great job. Those pocket hole jigs do a neat & strong joint.
