Shaping a Chair Seat by Mark Singer

1 of 3



I thought I would show a few pics of how a seat is formed....



First I make a template....1/8" melamine. Then draw the seat line and the leg curves on the edge.  I mark them all and then go one at a time through this rough stage.  Soon I will line them up and fine tune the shape so they are as close as possible to identical.

Using a Grex die grinder I chase the inside of the line to establish a groove. This is like painting the edges with a brush and then using a roller to blend.

The die grinder is more easy to control then the angle grinder with Arbortech.   By turning the seat in the vise I can keep in good position and control.

Then the Arbortech bulks out the seat working carefully to the grinder groove.

Learn how. Discover why. Build better.
