Build a Staked Armchair


  • Marc Adams School of Woodworking (map)

Build a comfortable stick armchair in the Welsh tradition using tools and materials that are familiar to the typical woodworker.

If chairmaking intimidates you, you aren’t alone. The tools, materials and processes seem to require a pledge of allegiance to an entirely different craft that uses green wood, shavehorses and steamboxes. It doesn’t have to be that way.

With a bit of cleverness and (mostly) standard woodworking tools, you can build an extremely comfortable stick armchair using woods from your local lumberyard (or even your scrap bin) and tools already in your shop.
