In Fine Woodworking #227, furniture maker Michael Fortune explains how to construct a contemporary café chair. The jig he uses to cut the ribs for the seat and back is actually a modified version of a simple circle cutting jig for the bandsaw. The foundation of the jig is an adjustable center point in an adjustable arm that is clamped to the bandsaw’s table. Fortune then places a particle board base onto the center point.

You can see it in action in the video above, and learn how to build and use the jig in his article, A Revolution in Chairmaking.
