The third project we are featuring on Woodcademy TV (Episodes 5 and 6) is a mission-style dining chair. We utilize basic shop tools and simple steam bending techniques while building this woodworking project. We even teach you how to build a template sled.
Episodes 5 and 6 are streaming now. Episode 5 takes you through the process of creating a bending form and how to steam bend your chair parts, making and using a template sled, as well as milling the rear legs of the chair. In episode 6 we assemble the chair, showing you how to manage the compound angle cuts that need to be made. We also teach how to make, pad and cover the seat to complete the set of six mission style dining chairs.
