    Hello,

    Does anyone out there have some simple dining chair plan ideas? I am going to build some for my wife, but I have never built a chair before. I have searched the web and I only find really fancy chairs that are above my skill level.

    one way to get to making a chair you want would be find something you like and start taking measurments....

    chairs aint the easiest creatures to make, but they the hardest either.....

    2 rounds upright with a 2x10 pegged to them and sanded smooth would make a nice dinning seat ...... sort of a picnic atmosphere...... :)) of course the wife may nay say when you bring it in.

    Woodworkers Journal Puts out a set of free plans every month, you d/l them in pdf format but some are simple others are medium.... you can search the archives for plans and even good links to other plans on the net..... ive been getting the free plans now for some time..... but never seem to try them out...... maybe when i retire huh..... in 30 years.
