Michael Fortune Garden Chair Video Series
If you’ve already devoured the latest issue (#240) of Fine Woodworking magazine, no doubt you saw contributing editor Michael C. Fortune’s article on building a beautiful garden chair using bent laminations. Michael’s article is a two-part tour-de-force-with issue 240 covering the construction of his bent lamination forms. Part II (issue #241), coming this June, will cover putting those forms to use as Michael builds the actual chair.

FineWoodworking.com is simultaneously releasing a 7-part video series that covers the entire construction process as well. We’ve already released Episode 1, covering construction of the bending forms, and the balance of the episodes will be released in tandem with the second half of our print article this June.
