Here is a sketch of some stackable chairs that I will be making. I’m pretty happy with the design so far.

I absolutely loved that video. Never seen it before. Awesome. I certainly would put to use a 5 axis CNC.

I must say that I prefer mortis and tenon over dowel or floating tenon. Not saying it can’t work but the former sure seems a more long lasting joint. The chair makes me want to see if I can steam bend those curves rather than just cut the shape into the wood.

That’s really nice. I’ve got some scraps that I think would be perfect for a few of these. You can never have too many chairs.

So are those mortise and tenon joints on the legs? How about the back rest – how’s it fastened?

Very nice.

All the leg joints are mortise and tenon and pegged from the inside. The back support is connected with dowels. It is a very rare place that I use a dowel for joinery but for that use it is plenty sufficient.

Really love the simplicity of these. Nice work.

Great idea, and they look fantastic too. Can’t wait to see the “stackable” bed frames! :)
