My first try at building chairs. In the one picture you can see what happens when you cut ALL the tenons at the wrong width. And I got to use the compas plane I bought for 2 bucks at a garage sale.

Great job on the chairs, but for some reason I keep thinking the bottom stretcher is upside down:)

Wow. These look great – love the design. The curves balance the longer straight back pieces. I have a kitchen table…and chairs…on my list (haven’t started). Chairs seem intimidating with the details and need to replicate. Had thought of buying chairs instead!!

Thanks for sharing.
