with Jeff Miller
This Chippendale-style Chair has a classic yet simple elegance that fits in well with a wide range of other styles. It's a project you'll want to show off, and building one will greatly increase your capabilities as a woodworker. Carefully worked out methods make this chair an accessible — but still challenging – hand tool project.
