Modern Chair

Woodworker: Adrian Ferrazzutti

At first glance, Adrian Ferrazzutti’s wenge-and-bloodwood chair is sleek, elegant, and simple in design. Yet the chair’s construction was anything but effortless. A deeper look reveals a coopered seat and backrest, compound angled joinery with wedged tenons, and twisted, tapered bent laminations. The coopering on the seat is straightforward, but Ferrazzutti felt that the backrest needed to be thinner at the edges and incorporate a taper--or two. From Fine Woodworking #194
