Kitchen Chairs

This picture shows the kitchen chair being assembled. The clamps hold the wooden pieces in place until the glue sets. Note the glass decoration embedded in the chair back. I bought several of these during a Mediterranean cruise. (Art work from onshore gift shops.) I used a router to cut an outline of the artwork 1/4" deep into the chair back, then used epoxy to cement the artwork into the chair.

Construction sequence finalized. Next is final sanding, pre-stain application, staining, and clear coats of polyurethane. Oh, and some sanding between coats with very fine sandpaper is required, too.
