This uniquely designed chair is made from white oak.
  • Glass artwork has been mortised into the backs. Artwork was purchased in Greece during a Mediterranean tour.
  • The slats, back pieces and rungs are attached using mortise and tenon joinery.
  • The box supporting the chair cushion is assembled using spline joints.
  • The box is reinforced with 3/4" plywood corner braces which are attached with glue and Kreg® pocket screws.
  • 1 1/4" wood screws are used to join the seat cushion to the plywood corner braces.
  • The legs of the chair have been notched to accept the seat box. The seat box is attached to the front and back legs using glue and wood screws.

  • The dining room chairs are built using the same plans as these kitchen chairs.
