PROGRAM –Vice President Greg stated that the program for tonight would be presented by Member Mike Chapman and would be about a MID CENTURY MODERN CHAIR -CUSTOMIZED. This would be a design that he modified from features defined in other chairs that were more to his liking and need. As with most projects of this type it is the patterns that are essential to building a replica of a vintage chair, but there are times when the “EYES VIEW” is the tool that is required to fabricate that one special piece. Mike showed in detail the many joints that were used and the fact that very few mechanical fasteners were required due in part to their slip fit. When a fine furniture piece such as a chair is finished the question still remains “Is a chair meant for sitting or display?”. Thanks to Mike and we look forward to more of his projects. Don’t forget to help Vice President Greg Hull by keeping a lookout for anything that would be of interest to our members and thank him for his efforts to bring us a program each month.
