The fear of chairmaking is gone

Worried that you don't have what it takes to create stunning and comfortable chairs? From getting the perfect angle to making sure the size is just right and that each chair is comfortable - chairmaking can be a daunting task for any woodworker. But, never fear Author Kerry Pierce draws upon decades of professional chairmaking experience to provide a handful of simple jigs that take the fear out of chairmaking.

This book shows you how to make a variety of styles and types of chairs, from a ladder-back Shaker chair to a continuous-arm Windsor chair. You'll learn how to weave tape and rush seats, carve and shape wooden seats and much more.

Book News Annotation:

This basic guide to chairmaking provides step-by-step instructions for 24 projects, with designs aimed at novice carpenters who possess the tools (including a lathe) but lack the confidence or experience. Kerry, a professional chairmaker, uses hundreds of color photographs to outline the chairmaking process from the selection of tools to the weaving of materials, with separate chapters covering arms, mortises and tendons and finishing. Projects include stools, rocking chairs, Hancock benches and Windsor Sack back chairs. Popular Woodworking Books is an imprint of F&W Publications.

Synopsis:

Chairmaking Simplified offers the complete chair experience for woodworkers by providing not only step-by-step instructions for an in-depth education on chairmaking but also a history of chair design and a section on how to design a comfortable chair. Other titles have covered very specific chairs such as Windsor or Shaker, but this is the first title to cover chairs in a comprehensive manner by offering a variety of styles and configurations guaranteed to offer at least one favorite for every woodworker. Kerry has simplified the process of chairmaking by using jigs and his voice lends to clear and easy instruction.
