Sketchup component libraries will become essential shop tools for many woodworkers, artisans and builders, and likely become essential to marketing of products like fasteners, drawer handles, hinges, commercial lumber, plywood, etc. The design seems to suffer from a common ailment of many interpretations of a particular 'style', the urge to do 'more'.
His arrogance was legendary, his funriture usually pretty uncomfortable but he is still the benchmark for the style. BRANHAM writes: THERE IS AN ARTICLE WRITTEN BY GRAHAM BLACKBURN - JAN FEB 2004 OF FINE WOODWORKING THAT CONCERNS PROPORTION IN DESIGN.

When it comes to tough woodworking projects, chairs are right up there with the dreaded Bombe chest. That said, sooner or later, most woodworkers with chops cut on cabinetry and tables will want to at least dip their toes into the chair-building pool.

One thing that I've been challenged with is "how to make the chairs comfortable?" Do you have any ideas? I read your profile and while I am not a professional, I share your "mantra" of "if it won't last a 100 years, don't build it." Any assistance or guidance that you could provide would be invaluable.
With the help of my friend Shane today, I am so excited to introduce plans for a more contemporary outdoor lounge chair.
This chair fits the Restoration Hardware Belvedere Cushions, some colors on sale right now. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Now, make a table of all the molded dimensions of the pieces and divide each one by this factor of 4.
After you have done the conversion, do a "sanity check" to see whether any of the molded dimension changes affect joint design. The only problem is that cushions are odd sized and it's hard to find an affordable replacement. For the cushion problem - I recently built a sofa and two chairs and the best cushion option I found was to buy a memory foam mattress.

That said, I doubt that Wright felt his furniture was intended to be comfortable or much more than an extension of his interior architecture. You will need the SketchUp software to download this drawing and its freely available online. The back posts will require a steady rest and a lathe that accommodates a 43-in.-long turning. All the parts, except for the arms, rockers, and curved back slat, are turned on the lathe.
Also, look to see if the resultant slat widths (the molded face width of each slat) are close to some "standard" or easily re-sawn dimension. One alternative (and my plan) is to buy cushions elsewhere and then tweak the build plans to fit my cushions.

My kids can be a little wild sometimes and I'm concerned about them running to jump into the chair and possibly loosening or pulling the back section off of the arms. Alexander has a very smart approach to construction, moving from building the prototype to milling the parts, and cutting the joinery. One would think that a small project with four legs, a seat and back wouldn't be so hard to pull off, but it is.
With its simpe and attractive lines, the Shaker rocker is economical to build, surprisingly comfortable, and functions as a great introduction to a variety of woodworking techniques. I will be making some more and you will find they are a time consuming chair to make but worth it.

I was going to go with adirondack chairs, but these have to be way more comfortable and they look awesome. If so, look at re-jiggering the gap spacings and counts to suit the standard, while still keeping the overall scale.
An idea I have is to use 2X4 for the arms instead of 1X4 and then use lag bolts thru the back section and into the arms. Not all drawings have the measurements displayed but you can use the measurement tool in SketchUp to easily and accurately determine the dimensions of each lumber part. Most drawings do not have instructions, its assumed you can build it based on the completed drawing provided. He also tells how to fine-tune and dry-fit the parts and how he finished the chairs with Sam Maloof's three-part finish. Please contact individual web sites if you have questions about those woodworking projects. I'm sure there are several ways to beef up the support for the back section, but this is what I'll probably end up doing.
