Plan of the Week: Farmhouse Dining Chair

The  Chief’s Shop Farmhouse Dining Chair was the second most popular Sketch of the Day during Viewers’ Choice week in December, so it’s a project that YOU selected. I decided to go with three versions of the chair to try to make it accessible to the beginner and intermediate skill level.

You’ll need a table saw or circular saw with a guide like the Kreg Rip-Cut, miter saw, jigsaw, (possibly a router) and of course, a Kreg Jig to complete the beginner version. The intermediate version calls for a band saw in addition to the other tools listed.

Sketch of the Day: Farmhouse Dining Chair

This farmhouse dining chair concept begins Viewers’ Choice week for the Sketch of the Day. It’s the first of five concepts requested by those of you who read this blog. This is a very simple chair, with a shaped seat and cruved back slats. I prefer the two-toned look, with stained components and a cream/light tan paint for the remainder.


Be sure to like Chief’s Shop on Facebook! At 1,500 likes someone will be selected to receive a box of 500 Kreg pocket hole screws.
