Sample text

Then I marked and disc-sanded a flat section perpendicular to the floor on the front faces of the back legs, where the side rails will intersect the legs. Next I bandsawed a taper on the inside edges of the bottom section of the back legs, from 1 in. sq. at the floor to 11⁄2 in. sq. just below the flat at the side-rail intersection (about 121⁄2 in. from the floor). BUILT FOR COMFORT: THE THREE-SLAT CHAIR 47 THE THREE-SLAT CHAIR I also tapered the tops of the back legs to 1 in. wide on their inner edges, as viewed from the back (see the drawing at right), and to 3⁄4 in.

Sq. at the floor to 11⁄2 in. , 3 in. from their tops. Slats are each 5 in. high and taper from 175⁄ 8 in. wide to 157⁄ 8 in. wide. 1 in. 1 in. at center Slats are spaced 11⁄ 8 in. apart and are centered on the back leg. Leg-to-Rail Joinery I used mortise-and-tenon construction on this chair because it has no stretchers, so the strongest possible leg-to-rail joinery was necessary. I laid out all the rails with a 3 ⁄16-in. reveal at the leg intersections except the back rail, which I made flush to the inside of the chair.

I also rounded all the edges on the front faces of the back slats at this time to make the seat more comfortable and to give the chair a softer appearance overall. I clamped the slats to the chair temporarily with spring clamps, the top one at 36 in. from the floor, the other two with 11⁄ 8-in. spaces separating them. Then I marked the centers of the back legs, top to bottom, and I located the screw holes, two per slat on each leg. I removed the slats and drilled countersunk pilot holes for the screws from the back side of the legs.
