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.
