Episodes 5-6: Dining Chair


Project 3 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.

Episode 5, currently available for viewing, 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 (not yet released), we assemble the chair, showing you how to manage the compound angle cuts that need to be made. We also cover how to make, pad and cover the seat to complete the mission dining chair.
