Wing Chair plansFree Wing Chair plans - A colonial chair in maple makes a satisfying project, being easy to build and offering no great problem in upholstering. A chair of this type combines well with conventional two piece overstuffed living room suites and also makes an attractive bedroom chair. Start work by making a rough full-size plan of the elevation, as shown in the drawing. This will give the leg shape and serve as a guide in taking off the bevels at the arms and arm supports. The legs are next traced from the full-size plan, using carbon paper. The wood listed in the material list is of such a size as to permit both legs being cut from one piece. Similarly, one piece, if obtainable in the width specified, can be used to cut both side rails with a minimum amount of waste. Another good form of rail construction would be to use a glue joint at the point where the rail extends to make the front leg. Long dowels at the joint would have the advantage of stiffening the cross grain in the legs. The length dimension of the rails in the lumber list is net, with no allowance made for tenons. Therefore, if mortise-tenon construction is used at this point instead of dowels, a suitable allowance in the length of the rough lumber should be figured. Other details in the construction should be apparent from the drawings. All edges should be softened by using D-103 shaper cutter or similar shape. The arms should be sanded to a slightly longer round on the upper outside edges. The magazine rack is optional and can also be made either right or left hand as desired. An 11 degree bevel is necessary on the wings along the edge that fits against the rear legs. A bevel will also be required on the edge which fits against the arm. The exact angle here is best determined directly from the work.
