This is starting to feel like the slowest chair build in history. I was invited to provide a chapter for a book on the crafts industry so I’ve been attempting to document my processes on these chairs as a sample of how I work. Seems to be a great way to turn procedures glacial pace.
Simple elm and ash stick chair. It has an un-saddled seat, steam bent armrest, no stretcher, flat top comb and 4 long and 8 short sticks. The flat top comb with curved armrest means the outer sticks are pulled back at the top, making the shoulder blade area more comfortable with the narrow back rest. #welshstickchair#stickchair#handtools
