Re: UPDATE: Fine Woodworking's Tables and Chairs

Building a chair can be the most challenging and rewarding project for a woodworker. It certainly should be on everyone's bucket project list. For many of us, looking at that first chair might want to make you chuck it in the fireplace, as your eyes gravitate to small errors in rake and splay, spacing of spindles etc. This is all part of the learning curve and once you've completed about a dozen, you have earned the right to call yourself a chair maker!

The visualization contributes to the creative process as well as the actual turning process.
