Making Ladder Back Chairs with Russ FilbeckBy Russ Filbeck
This detailed, step-by-step book will take you through building your first 2-slat Appalachian - style chair, 3-slat side chair, 4-slat arm chair and 6-slat rockers. The book clearly illustrates the forms that need to be built, the hand and power tools required, and how each of these are used to create a finished, heirloom-quality chair that will last for generations.
Russ Filbeck is a nationally-known chairmaker, has been published in several woodworking magazines, and formerly taught at Palomar College. This book is the result of years of experience teaching chairmaking.
