The idea is that you don't want the point of the drill to go through the the other side of the wood. So I've got my quarter inch hole drilled. My test piece now we'll go ahead and drill all the holes in the chair. This is kind of a cool little trick. I'm going to show you see that I've got my holes marked out and drilled here on one half of the of the side frame and I need to get an exact match for the other side. So here's how I'm going to do it we're looking at the top end of one of the back side rails and what I'm going to do is put some of these little Center points right in the hole that I've drilled in the in this up right here And then after I've got that, then I'm going to with all four Center points put in the holes that I've drilled I'll just take my other side.
That's everything up, so it's nice and squares just lay it right on the side on top of it like that, and just let it rest there and then once I've got it where I like the way it's laying and everything is pretty well square. You got to make sure the bottoms of the legs are equal now simply take a rubber mallet to strike it there drag it there and although we have a spot to drill our holes for the other side, well. Let's assemble the back on to the to the uprights here.
There's our first look at the chair sort of a sample I'm going to have to do just a little bit of fine-tuning on the legs here because something didn't come out quite an arrival. No, you like the look so so far, not bad. Well, I put the thing together: everything fit it's just a dry fit right. Now I've got the chair drive fitted. You think, there's too many joints to glue all at once. So my plan is to just glue everything to this one side and these stretchers here and the back and then I'll use this other side just dry so that it can all hold everything in place.
One thing it's worth mentioning is that that was the time to really be careful and make sure that all of your glue squeeze-out is taken care of. I found that a little putty knife such as this a little bit flexible and sharp corners on it, just lay it over a piece of an old Terry towel, and then you can go right into the corner and wipe it completely out of the corner. That gets rid of that really well, then find another clean spot on the towel and then both ways cleaning up as you go, make sure you can't see a thing.
I've heard that some people use the paper towel for doing this. This seems to be mine, but the best method. I have my cloth totally squeezed dry and then after I use it to clean up one or two the squeeze-out. Then I go and rinse it out and really clean again and then dry it out really. Well, and that way it doesn't seem to soak into the wood nearly like it would if you just use a drying towel on it.
Well, there you go rupees nice thing about this chair is that the legs, the stretchers, the upright styles for the back the rails and the slots here in the back - are all two inches wide and then, of course, they're tapered to give them a little more pleasing Appearance, this is glued up in the see there are one two three four five pieces that I've glued out here to make the seat portion of the chair. This is this chair is totally complete.
