Chairs Don't Have to be Difficult Follow along with Christopher Schwarz as he shows you how to make a chair using a small set of tools — but with none of the typical chairmaking anxiety. You'll learn: • How to orient the legs for proper splay and rake — without a whole lot of math • The secret to strong leg joints so there's no need for stretchers between the legs (much less complicated!) • How to design a comfortable seat without the complication of saddling (shaping) • How to shape octagonal tapered legs and spindles, with no need for a shaving horse • To make a curved crest rail from firewood using a super-simple steam-bending method • And much more!
