Product Description

For those woodworkers who prefer full-size plans, we now offer plans for the two chairs featured in Peter Galbert's book "Chairmaker's Notebook".

The plans feature handmade full-size drawings of the following components of the fan-back and balloon-back chairs:

  1. Full-size turning patterns of legs, stretchers and posts - both bobbin and baluster forms.
  2. Full-size drawings of the seat shapes that feature all mortise locations, sightlines and resultant angles.
  3. The fan-back crest shape and the bending form required to make it.
  4. The profiles of on the back of the balloon-back chair and the bending form required to make it.

All the drawings are fully dimensioned with easy-to-read call-outs. The plans for both chairs come printed on a single 36" x 48" sheet on white, #20 paper typically used for engineering prints. The plans are folded to a 9" x 12" size and ship in a rigid cardboard mailer.

One caveat: While these plans provide the shapes of all the components, you will need “Chairmaker’s Notebook” to build the chairs exactly as Pete describes. These plans are a supplement to – not a substitution for – the book.
