Below you will see some sketch-up renderings of the dining table and chairs that will one day belong to my Mom. This month was a milestone birthday for her and without giving away her age, lets just say it was a big enough one that my Dad decided he wanted to commission an extra special gift for her.
Keep in mind the purpose of these was to give them a general idea of what I was thinking. The slightly off proportions and shapes leave them looking quite blah but you'll get the idea.
|Side view of arm chair. The stretcher will not have that weird angle...thanks for that sketch-up...|
|Seats will be woven and yes, I realize Ill be weaving for a week. I'll pop in a few good movies and tada!...I hope.|
|I like the armless, plus it keeps thing less crowded around the table...we have discussed the possibility of having 6 arm chairs but I will be voting neh.|
|The table top looks nice with this perfect quarter-sawn walnut graphic. I'm still debating how to best construct the table-top. Veneers or solid wood? Both seem to have their advantages but we'll see.|
|The legs of both the chairs and the table will taper slightly and be a little heavier on the bottom.|
