Re: [MedievalSawdust] Glastonbury chairs
- Not all Glastonbury chairs have angled arms. There is a pair in the V&A that have parallel arms. I have taken pictures and measurements of those chairs (but don't have the V&A chairs on my website (yet) ).I have a set of Glastonbury plans on my website (for the parallel arm chairs).cheers,TerafanMaster Rhys Terafan Greydragon terafan@...Brewer, tent and furniture maker, and other things I can't remember....----- Original Message -----From: RalphSent: Saturday, June 10, 2006 2:56 AMSubject: RE: [MedievalSawdust] Re: Glastonbury chairs (Was Pennsic project thread)
Glastonbury chairs in my opinion are difficult because there are lots of parts that must align with each other precisely. Combine this with the angled holes for the arms and unusual arm shape make this design rather complex for the beginner.
But I must say that the very first chairs I ever constructed were 4 chairs of that type. A beginner can make these chairs! Just be careful, take your time and if you have problems, ask someone!

Guys I'm still a very novice wood worker, what level of difficulty are
these glastonbury chairs? I have made one (mostly successful) medieval-
ish chair based on the greydragon "gothic" chair plan but the only real
power tool I have access to right now is a jig saw! :)
